Is Add-in framework adding a registry key?

Hi,

While testing our client reported that spybot caught something being written on the registry.

By default I know it's writing in these location:
-HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/[Manufacturer]
-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/[Manufacturer]

But since I don't use the registry there's no entry on those locations. But spybot detects something.

Is there a registry key being added by add-in?

Thanks,
czetsuya

Hi czetsuya,

Most probably this is added by the installer, see View | Editor | Registry when in your setup project.

Yes, it creates all registry entries described at http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb776819.aspx which are applicable to your project type.
