Creating registry conditions
Registry conditions specify the installation information by which the product is to be recognized.
IMPORTANT: Strict conditions (conditions without wildcard characters) take a precedence over non-strict conditions (conditions with wildcards for character substitution). This means that if a product in the registry matches any strict registry condition, all non-strict registry conditions ignore that product.
To create a registry condition:
In the Software Recognition - Registry Condition window, in the Product Name field, type in a value for matching to the product name in the installation information. You can use standard wildcard characters: the question mark (?) substitutes for one character, the asterisk (*) substitutes for any zero or more characters.
If you need to restrict the condition, specify either or both of the following parameters:
To specify the software publisher, select the Manufacturer check box and type in the value for matching the product manufacturer in the installation information.
To specify the software version, select the Product Version check box and type in the value for matching the product version in the installation information.
You can use standard wildcard characters ? and * in both the Manufacturer and the Product Version fields.
