HKCU entries not set when deployed from Software Center

InstallShield 2015 Premier -  AdminStudio edition

created an installer, added some HKCU entries under System Configuration, Registry

Run the installer manually, the registry gets set.

Deploy the installer from Software Center, no entries in HKCU.  HKLM works...

One other interesting line:  

MSI (s) (64:1C) [07:49:41:516]: Determined that existing product (either this product or the product being upgraded with a patch) is installed per-machine.

Started to read about per-machine vs per-user, ALLUSERS, etc.  Made my head spin.  Tried to make the installer per-user (which I understand is NOT recommended) and the installer set ALLUSERS to 1 every time.


So, how can I get HKCU entries set when deploying through Software Center?

I work the first time with Software Deployment. I try to install a tool with Powerpoint AddIn over SCE2010. The installation works fine.

But the addin is not installed for the User. The Registry Key is logically set for the SCE Admin User.

How can I set the key in the right place.
