Repackaged MSI removes NetworkProvider RegistryKey

Hi All,

I'm currently trying to repackage Netmange's ViewNow software using MacroVision\InstallShield's AdminStudio v7.0.

I'm only installing two components of the package - Telnet and NFS InterDrive

The Telnet part repackages fine. But the NFS InterDrive causes a LSSASS.exe error when the package is uninstalled and prevents the workstation from booting. After a bit of troubleshooting I managed to find what causes this problem. The application's setup routine modifies the following registry values:


When the package is uninstalled the registry key HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\NetworkProvider is removed.

How can I leave the keys on the system?

The Install Only option is greyed out on the context menu. I've also tried to the delete then re-add the keys by importing them which then displays the + sign next to the registry entry indicating that it will Install Only but after testing this the key is still removed.

My knowledge is very much limited when it comes to repackaging so verbose replies would be very much appreciated.

Many thanks in advance

As I am no doubt you are already aware: repackaging MSI setups is almost in every case a very bad idea.
