HKCU key with [INSTALLDIR] public property as value is not getting installed due to permission issues in the non-admin mode. Is it because the repair does not recogonize the value of the Public property?

A permission issue with an HKCU key?!? I can only think that your machines have some user-level Group Policy stuff applied which the sys admin doesn't want users to alter. That's pretty common in corporate environments. You need to first find out if that's the case by examining the permissions which are applied to the key's parent. If it is locked, then you need to talk with the sys admin people and have the key deployed, perhaps via GP.

can I ask how you are propagating the regkey to the different users on the machine? Active Setup/Advertisement?
If it's active setup, what command are you running?
If selfheal, is it the only regkey in the component? Is it the keypath?
If you're installing on XP, what does the eventlog tell you about the components that are being repaired?
Also, is nothing being set or is the reg-value being set with blank contents?

It was a strange to have this error. Although a similar package was working fine this package failed.

After hours of toil, I choose to redo the package and it worked.

I was using an advertised shortcut to propagate the registry key. The event log did point to the component with the HKCU keys component and showed that it failed to install. I do not have the exact message.

It was a priority package, so could not test further on it. Should have had a backup atleast. My bad!

Thanks for your ideas!
