Is it wise to leave registry entries like the below in an msi package


Or should these kind of registry keys be installed differently.

The question is a bit vague here...as you have not mentioned the name of the package...

How I would approach this is to check and see if the package has anything to do with MSXML (ex: if it installs msxml or has a dependency, etc) if yes, then I would leave these behind, else will be deleted.

Also google it and see if anything interesting comes up...Also make sure that you test the package throughly if you are deleting any resources which you are not sure of.

These entries detail side-by-side DLL installations. In all likelihood, your MSI contains the merge module for MSXML2. Leave well alone!
