Hello,

We currently have an old version of Install Shield Express which is no longer fitting our needs.

Our installation needs to install registry keys in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE with permissions so that non-administrator users are able to modify them (because of Vista's registry virutalization). Is it possible to do this in Install Shield Express 12? If not can you do it in regular install shield?

Thanks,
Todd

I've figured this out, thank you.

I have been working the same issue, try this tool as a custom action: http://setacl.sourceforge.net/
