Whenever i exec my .msi setup program produced by installshield everything installs fine except for the fact that the registry entries, which i imported from a .reg file, are not being updated on the target machine. Does anyone have any ideas what's going on? Below is the .reg file im importing and using within my installation project
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

1. Watch out for 64/32 bit differences. A 32-bit install on a 64-bit system isn't going to change the native registry. It will change te corresponding HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node entries.
2. Those keys may be managed by Windows Resource Protection on Windows 7.
and Windows 7 may just not change them.
