View Full Version : DWORD Registry Entry turns to String

10-11-2011, 11:23 PM
I am using IS 2012 Premier and a Basic MSI project.

I have noticed that when I create some registry entry keys for a component, and at the end of the tree of keys add a DWORD value, the first time I add it, it turns into a string. Meaning that, if I run the installation and look in the registry, it will show a REG_SZ value and not a REG_DWORD value.

If I then go back to the component, delete the DWORD value (which is really a string), then add a DWORD value again and give it a value, on the next install it will really be a DWORD value in the registry.

I can reproduce this consistently. It's a bit of an oddity.

Anyone else experience this?

I confirmed it is a bug, and submitted the work order #IOA-000066025 so that it will be fixed in a service pack.

Thank you for reporting this.
