Here is my scenario:

- I install an app as Admin that contains registry keys to be written in the HKCU key.
- Then I run the app as User which causes the app to self-repair to write the HKCU registry data for User
- I then uninstall the app as Admin

The problem is that the HKCU entries for User remain upon uninstall of the app.

How can I ensure all HKCU registry entries for User are removed when Admin uninstalls the app?

From my research it seems that I should be able to accomplish this with either the RemoveRegistry or Registry tables by specifiying the full path to the keys I need to delete. However as the uninstall is running as Admin it seems I would need to specify the removal of the User keys from HKEY_USERS but how I would not know the correct path for the key?

Thanks in advance.

You can't and you shouldn't try.

Although you could do a per-user installation (though you need to set AlwaysInstallElevated policy). Than you can also do a per-user removal, which makes it possible to remove those keys.
