OK, i am now getting the hang of this. i can get everything where i want it. not just once but repeatedly :) but one SMALL problem remains. IT DOESN'T MATTER HOW MUCH I TELL THE PROJECT TO LEAVE A REGISTRY KEY, ON UNINSTALL IT REMOVES IT!!!!

this is a major problem as i am setting required keys to a new value, then after an uninstall the keys are not only not returned to their original value, but are deleted altogether.

I really need an answer on this one. this also seems to go for files. i am setting to not shared, permanent etc but they are always removed on uninstall anyway. this was ok under version 3.0 but now it is removing everything. HHEEELLLPPP!!!

think i have sussed it now. It seems to be doing what i want.

I had to also set the shared key to NO. otherwise it was always de-installed? But anyway it is now okay as far as i can see on NT XP and 2K.
