View Full Version : Combined registry views do not show combined registry data

Scenario: Two components with mutually exclusive conditions set the same value.

Component_A sets HKLM\Software\MySoftware (Default)=red
Component_B sets HKLM\Software\MySoftware (Default)=blue

When you go to the registry view and set the filter to one of the views that has the extra component column, "All Application Data" or the Feature, you would expect to see both data items with their respective data, like so:

Name Data Component
(Default) red Component_A
(Default) blue Component_B

Instead, you see only one of the entries. The one that is shown is unpredictable.
