Registry Value Overwritten During Upgrade

Hi,

When my users upgrade my product, a registry value get overwritten by the default value in the installer.
I have tried setting the 'ISRegistryComponent' properties 'Permenent' to yes and also 'Never Overwrite' to yes but it still gets over written.
Also the 'Install Only +' option is never available on my registry key?
I have browsed the forums and have tried several solutions. One option I have found is to set up properties and conditions but I really don't understand this.
Can anyone help with a easy guide on how to prevent my registry key being over written during an upgrade?

I am using Installshield Spring 2012 - Professional Edition.

Thanks,

Jon.

Re: Registry Value Overwritten During Upgrade

Hi Jon,

Can you tell me what sort of upgrade are you doing ?

Are you setting a key path for the Registry entry component?

If you set Never Overwrite setting for a component then the registry value will not be overwritten during upgrade. After minor upgrade you can check the log and it will have an entry "Disallowing installation of component: since the registry keypath exists and the component is marked to never overwrite existing installations"
