Can someone give me a hands-on (manual for dummy [;)]) how to autorepair the HKey_Current_User within an MSI ?

I have a MSI with some HK_CU regs. De distribution is done with SMS, so the initial HK_CU regs are installed under the SMS-account.

I want the HK_CU to automatically repair on the usersaccount , when he/she start the advertised link to the program. At the moment I only get the HK_CU installed on the logged-on user when I do a manual repair of the program.

Please if you know how to implement the above, could you give a hands-on example.
Just saying... "you need to make an entrypoint and link it to the registry-key" won't really help out me and other newbies...

I used to think Active Setup was pointless if you had an entry point but I'm a late convert. Do a Google search or search the forums on that as well.

As turbokitty stated, you don't have to use Active Setup on this.
Make sure the component holding the HKCU registry is in the same feature or a parent feature of the component holding the advertised shortcut, that's it.
