APPX conversion: registry key cannot be included

Postby A_Ivlev » Mon Jun 10, 2019 4:22 pm

Hello,

I'm trying to build an APPX package for my existing InstallAware project. The installation creates a number of registry keys/values in HKLM and one key in HKCU.

The APPX package gets built fine, but the log contains this line:
Warning! The key "HKCU\Software\MyApp\New Install" cannot be included because not supported by the APPX format

How can I fix this?

You may build a MSIX package in place of APPX. MSIX full supports HKCU registry Keys.
