Registry start condition problem when deploying with VsNet2003

As my registry start condition was working fine, now it's not working anymore

Here are the kind of parameter I use in VSNEt2003:

A) Registry :
Name : Pipo;
Property : PROP1;
RegKey :SOFTWARE\Add1\Add2
Root : vsdrrHKLM
Value : Deux

B) Start condition
Name : Condition1
Condition : PROP1
InstallUrl :
Message : Error

Even if the registry(string value) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Add1\Add2 is
Deux, I get the message Error.

Why ?

An other question :

If I have another property PROP2, can I have a start condition which check
that
PROP1 OR PROP2 is OK (one of the two condition is enough to start)?

Best regards.

From the way you ask the question, I think you're misunderstanding how it
works. It's not simply a search that the Name Deux is there under that key,
it's a search to get the data associated with that name, and my guess is
that you have no Data in your Deux entry. There must be data there for the
search to succeed.
