Add IE registry entry with setup program

I need to add a registry entry to internet explorer (I'm adding a right
click menu item) with vb.net setup program. Anyone know how to do that?

Thanks!

Steve, this should be fairly easy to do.
In your setup project open the registry editor, by either clicking on the
registry icon in the solution explorer (when the setup project is selected)
or using the view -> editors -> Registry Editor.
In the registry editor Create the path that corresponds to the key you want
to change.
And add your key.
The Path you are probably looking for is
HKLM->Software->Microsoft->Internet Explorer->...
Also set the last key's always Create property to true.
