View Full Version : Can we create dynamic registry

03-18-2008, 09:33 AM

I am creating a project for VISTA using installscript. In VISTA the registry of HKLM cannot be edited unless the user is an Administrator user.

I need to open my read me file wiht the default browser. Suppose i have IE installed as my default browser and i install my product. My read me will open with IE but if i choose to unistall IE and the install firefox, now my readme does not open using firefox. It still searches for IE which is not present.

So is there a way that i can create dynamic registry.

Thanks in advance,

Perhaps look into using the LaunchApplication function with the LAAW_OPTION_USE_SHELLEXECUTE option? That should open a document with its default handler.
