Just take a snapshot of BO 5.1.6 with Wise Studio 4.6 (do NOT reboot when asked!)

Change the default install directory to: C:\Program Files\Business Objects
Registry:
Keep HKCR intact, but delete: HKCR\CLSID

HKLM, keep:
1. Software\Business Objects

2. Software\Microsoft\Jet
3. Software\Microsoft\Shared Tools
4. Software\Microsoft\VBA
5. Software\Microsoft\Windows
6. Software\Microsoft\Windows NT

Look for \Software\Business Objects\Shared\General\5.0\Directories\, here you can find several subkeyfolders with the path for e.g. Document (UserDocs), Universe, LocalData (Bo-key) etc. Don't forget to copy the approriate files to these folders if you change the paths.
Disregard al other HKLM-keys


HKCU
1. Software\Business Objects\BusinessObjects\5.0\busObj\BusinessObjects:Registered Version= 0500010000600160001000000 (to get rid of the first-run splashscreen)
2. Software\Business Objects\BusinessObjects\5.0\BusObj General Preferences\General Preferences\General\Language Settings: Languageld =20044 - LongName=Nederlands - ShortName=NL (For a Dutch installation)
All other HKCU setting can be disregarded for BO 5.1.6

Files:
Delete C:\Windows\randseed.rnd
Delete C:\Windows\Temp

Ini-files:
You can safely delete all .ini (leave the one in \Program Files\Business Objects\Data Access 5.0 <- optional)

Custom Actions (with RegDacl.exe):
1. RegDacl.exe HKLM\Software /GGE:QWCENRLDR(NI) (NI stands for Non-inheritable)
2. RegDacl.exe HKLM\Software\business objects /GGE:QWCENRLDR (this gives inheritable rights)

When using Macros you could get the following error: : 'FRM0025 - Unable to create macro' , also VBA Editor won't work. The solution is to do the action as a Power User or Administrator to create the file: MsForms.twd in the \Windows\System32-folder. If a user doesn't have the right to create this file, the above error occurs. Copt this file into the system32-folder to resolve the above problem.

User needs Change\Read-rights to C:\Program Files\Business Objects and change-rights to all user folder like Temp, UserDocs etc. For LocData the user needs to create and maintain the *.LSI-files.

Note
When creating the Business Objects v5.1.6 MSI, Export then remove the following registry key before performing the ''After'' Snapshot:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Business Objects\BusinessObjects\5.0\BusObj Configuration\BusinessReporter\Bus Initialization]

When taking the Snapshot, WinInstall somehow corrupts this key.

The Snapshot will then take, but Business Objects will not run. Apply the exported Registry key and it will work !!!!

Hope it helps.
