    Re: Registry Variable Failure

    May be a little late...sounds like I problem I had when pasting the path from Regedit -
    you don't want "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\" in the sub key field - its already in the main key field. As such SUF looks for:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\rest of path...

    Re: Registry Variable Failure

    I know the value name exists. It doesn't have a space. And it does have a value.

    I am pasting this directly from Registrar (a registry editing tool):

    Keyname
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\9.0\Co mmon\General

    Value Name:
    UserTemplates

    Value
    C:\Microsoft Office\Templates

    The reason you do not have a UserTemplates Value Name/Value is that you accepted and have not changed (or confirmed) the location of templates in Word's Tools.Options.FileLocations dialog box.

    For an installation such as yours I would be creating a second Registry Value to check and use -- but I am testing the product and just picked on I know exists in my registry to see if I can get it to do what I require before I consider moving from InstallShield to Setup Factory.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I have everything up to: "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\9.0\Co mmon\General" but nothing called "UserTemplates".
    Is there supposed to be a space in that registry value, i.e. should it be: "User Templates"?

    mark.

    Registry Variable Failure

    I want to locate the Word template directory before installing my application.

    I create a Registry Variable that looks like:

    Variable Name: %TemplateDir%
    Default Value: Not Installed
    Main Key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER
    Sub Key: Software\Microsoft\Office\9.0\Common\General
    Value Name: UserTemplates
    Set variable to TRUE if Sub Key exists: Unchecked

    I know this key exists. I know it has a value.

    I have the destination folder set to:
    %TemplateDir%\%ProductName%

    When I run the install this variable is always set to Not Installed.

    I must be missing something really simple.

    Thanks.
Working...
