Registry key created with no value has value of empty string
I have an InstallShield 2010 MSI project that contains several string registry entries that must have a setting of (Default) with a value of (Value not set). I read the document Q106602: PRB: Registry Key Created with No Value Has Value of Empty String that indicates a workaround by using the , +, - or *. Well, I have tried all of these, and when I look in the registry after my product is installed, the value for these registry entries is still empty. Does anyone have any suggestion as to how to make this work?

I was able to find a workaround to this issue. I had to manually create a reg file and export it to a file. I then created a new component and then on the Propert page for that component, used the setting REG file to merge at build (to load the reg file) and it installed the registry file correctly, with the string (Default) and the data (value not set)
