registry values not updating
I am setting 2 current registry values.
However, when I change the values in Installshield and then rebuild and install, the updated values are from a previous install.
No matter how many times I change the registry entries in Installshield and then rebuild/install, it still seems to be picking up some other registry entry.
Is it something to do with the Registry Flag Settings?
Are you deleting the old registry entries first? Try that manually and see if the new entries are getting entered now.
How do you mean delete the entries manually?
I reset the values from a registry file before I run the install program but the values keep getting set to some old values.
Sorry about the vagueness. By manually, I mean with regedit.exe. Go to the hive/key you are having trouble with, highlight it and hit the Del key. When asked if you really want to delete it, click yes.
Or, if you want to be able to restore it, once selected you can go to File | Export, and export that key to a .reg file on your hard drive. Then you can delete it, and if everything fails, just double click on the .reg file to restore the entry.
Writing the installs for our company, I do this all the time!
Feel free to ask if you have any questions.
Cheers but I have found the problem
Within a different component I had the same string values but with the old values.
Bit of a stupid one I know but I didn't even look up there.
I just assumed reg keys were app and not component specific
