Setup and deployment project

P: n/a
I am not sure if I post this issue at the correct newgroup. If I need to
post it somewhere else, please let me know what is the correct newsgroup for
this.

I am using VB.NET 2005 and I create a "setup and deployment" project.
When I use this installation to install on a user's machine, how can I merge
some registry settings into the user's machine ?

Thank you

The solution explorer, select the "Registry editor" button on the top
toolbar (it's a little button showing some blocks in cyan). Then you can
add the registry settings in the "Registry (<name of setup project>)" tab.

Great ! Thank you.
Is there any way that I can import/copy the registry settings from my
machine to the setup and deployment ? (instead of creating them one by one
in the setup and deployment )

There's an option in that Registry IDE view to import a .reg file. Do Import
on the Registry on Target Machine.
