I've built my little test script, 1 user input dialog, three registry values, registry permissions on one key. It worked on the first Win 7 64-bit pc I tested on; however, on the second pc (same image), my registry permission was set on the key uner Wow6432Node. Why? The project is a Windows 64-bit install. I did notice that the registry additions are purple commands and the access control is black. Also, the access control was not entered in the same location as the registry additions. I chose all of my components in Design view since I didn't want to complicate things by adding commands into nonstandard sections of the script.
This project is used by IT techs in our organization configuring computers that need to have a specific logon name set in the MS GINA to appear at logon every time. I first built it for Windows XP (32-bit) a few years ago, then a Windows 7 32-bit image, then for our Windows 7 64-bit image. That's when registry redirection bit me.
What have I done incorrectly? Or how could I make this better?
I also noticed that I have to run the EXE twice. The first time, a couple of windows appear and zoom away and nothing happens (too fast to read them). The second time, I have to say "OK" to go the InstallAware site ( a trial issue, I assume), then my input dialog appears.
Sorry for all my questions, but I'm anxious to satisfy all my concerns and decide if IA is the right product for us.
