The terms "key file" and "key path" refer to certain components (files, registry keys) that are required for the application to function properly and that if damaged or missing will invoke a repair of the application.  The "key file" is a file or registry key  that will be reinstalled when a repair is called, it is located on the target machine in the "key path" location.

When installing files to per-user locations, such as the Desktop folder, you must use a registry value under HKEY_CURRENT_USER as the key path in order to pass ICE38 validation.
