How to include registry files in Wise Packaging?

Can anybody advise me on how I can include a registry entry file in Wise packaging so when actually running the msi setup, it doesn't only copy the files to the specific folder  but it reads the .reg files and registers them into the system registry?

Hope someone can help me out with this...

You don't include registry files, you specify registry entries on the Registry page. Press F1 and read about Registry Page.

I have a file named "ogui.reg" which contains a number of registry entries. This file is included in the C:\Program Files\Ellipse Data. I want this file read/executed during the installation to register  those entries. Is there any step that I am missing to do this? Please advise.

Don't include the reg file with the product; import it into the installation; see details in Help article "Importing and Exporting Registry Entries". Then Installer will create all registry entries by itself on the target machine during the installation, and will remove them if the product will be later uninstalled. This is the recommended practice.

By the way, if the directory "Ellipse Data" represents the place for some data files required by your application, the recommended place is not under Program Files, but under special folder "Application Data". Otherwise there may be problems on Vista and on Windows 7.
