Hello,
in the 2.11 version of ISE it was possible to prevent registry entries from being uninstalled during update process. How can i do that in the 3.51?

Thank you
Jürgen

I'm afraid this functionality may be a limitation of the Windows Installer itself. I looked at the help files for the Registry Table (in Msi Help) and it gives a few options when installing the key but no options or settings regarding an uninstall. Instead of adding these reg entries through the view you could try adding them through a Custom Action. This way unless you manually delete them through another Custom Action they will be untouched by the uninstall.
