Question

How do I delete or remove registry keys during the installation of my .msi?

Answer

  1. In Installation Expert on the Feature Details page, add the Registry entry. 
  2. Right-click and choose Remove all subkeys and values during install

This updates the RemoveRegistry table and places a hyphen (-) in the Name column. This means the key is to be deleted, if present, with all of its values and subkeys, when the component is installed.
