Hi all,

Does anyone out there know how to append a registry value either by the registry table in a MSI or via a txt file, this is causing severe grief at the moment when running in one or more packages that write to the same key.

Please help..

i have done this in admin studio.
here is what i did.
i used system search to search for the registry entry and store the value in a buffer.
and in the registry entry place the buffer value

if you store the value in the buffer [RegKey]
and if you want to append "mvfs" to it
then in the registry key put it as [RegKey],mvfs

If you want to append a string to a list of strings in a registry key (i.e. reg value has the type multi-string), then there is a special notation. For example if you specific a registry value of "[~]boo", then it will add the string "boo" to the end of the list of strings.
