Create a string value under RunOnce hive and set the value to regedt32 -s <path to reg file>, Name can be anything meaningful.

Instead u can opt for Activesetup if its not compulsion to have it under RunOnce key only.

The RunOnce key is the wrong place for this kind of thing. Use ActiveSetup or better, if your package has advertised entry-points e.g. an advertised shortcut, create a user feature and make the feature which contains the entry-point a child of the user feature. That way, the user data gets "repaired" when the entry-point is accessed.
