Hi,

I have a procedure in the Inno setup script.
If this condition is met, I want to create a registry entry.
How do I do that?

I know that by creating the registry section it creates them automatically.
ex)
[Registry]
Root: HKCU; Subkey: "Software\My Company"; Flags: uninsdeletekeyifempty
Root: HKCU; Subkey: "Software\My Company\My Program"; Flags: uninsdeletekey
Root: HKLM; Subkey: "Software\My Company"; Flags: uninsdeletekeyifempty


I have this  procedure call:
[Files]
Source: "..\xxxx\*"; DestDir: "{app}\Setup\xxxxx"; AfterInstall: AfterxxxInstall();Flags: ignoreversion deleteafterinstall

procedure AfterxxxInstall();
begin
if (hasRegEntry = true) then begin
\\create an reg entry    <====== I want to create a registry entry if this condition is met
end
end;

I think I got it.

procedure AfterxxxInstall();
begin
if (hasRegEntry = true) then begin

RegWriteStringValue(HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, 'CLSID\{xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx}','', '');
end
end;
