I want to use subinacl.exe to make registry key "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\PeachtreeAccounting.Login\CurVer" give full control to Users.

Should I use /keyreg or /subkeyreg? I've read the documentation but don't fully understand. I expect /keyreg will only modify 1 key, but will /subkeyreg modify the key and also propogate my settings to all the subkeys also?

Also, the /outputlog switch seems to overwrite previous text instead of appending it. So I think I will need a separate log file for each registry key I set permissions for. That doesn't seem good.

the later versions of Windows Installer support registry perms with inheritance. I think this was intro'd in version 4.5 depends what your running on your clients.
