I have a problem here. The patch that i created will overwrites the registries settings to default values.

This will cause problem to my user that have their settings changed to suit their environment.

Why is this happening??

I'm using MSP patch.

Any advice is greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Best regards,

The default REINSTALLMODE for a patch is "omus". The "m" part of the REINSTALLMODE rewrites machine keys, and the "u" does the user keys.

You could either change the REINSTALLMODE of your patch or you could use the "msidbComponentAttributesNeverOverwrite" component attribute to protect those registry keys.
