SnagIt 7.x

I am trying to repackage Snagit 7.x with WiseStudio but having difficulties with some of the user settings. I found a post on this site that talks about creating a program to set registry values for current user, but am not sure how to go about doing this. What type of software / prgoram do I use? Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Here is the info I pulled from the package knowledge base.
Useful Registry Keys:

RegistrationDialogHasShown = 1 DWORD <- Disable registration dialog
ShowTipOfDay = 0 DWORD <- Do not show Tip of the day

The Below is what I use to disable the auto update feature.

Updater\AllowDateBasedCheck = 0 DWORD
Updater\DaysBetween = 14 DWORD
Updater\LastCheck = 06 E7 8D 43 00 00 00 00 BINARY
Updater\PromptToCheck = 0 DWORD

Because all of this is in the CURRENT_USER, you'll have to create a program to set the above values, and add it to

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components]

Each time a new user signs on, the above settings will be handled through active setup."

I'm not sure what you're asking but it sounds like the Current User registry keys aren't getting copied. Am i right?
You could use an Active Setup key? Or advertised shortcuts?

The program that this person is talking about I reckon is the Active Setup key.

What you need to do is add those Current User Registry keys that you reckon are needed and then add the Active Setup key.

The key you need to add is
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\[ProductCode]]
And the value you need to set in there is
stubpath = msiexec /fu [ProductCode] /qb

The /fu will repair the Current user registry keys the first time the user logs on.
Those reg keys will then be written.

Sorry for the confusion. When I create a MSI and add the registry keys it doesn't work properly. Some of the registry changes work others do not.
