InstallDate    REG_DWORD Time (in seconds) since 12:00 A.M. on January 1, 1970r

Default: (There is no default value for this entry. The system calculates this value during installation.)

Stores the date and time that the current build of Windows NT was installed.
For example, Monday, January 01, 1996, 12:00:00 AM would be 0x30E76A50 (820,472,400 seconds).
