Summary0001453: 1470 follow up - Install path missing

The graphviz installer does not save the install path in the registry:
- the default EXE installer is supposed to store the path under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ATT\Graphviz\InstallPath.
This worked for old versions but does not work for the 2.20 exe installer
- the new MSI installer should store the path under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{D62975CC-4A38-4AB4-92F1-B3404A7638CF}\InstallLocation
After installation however this key does not contain any information.

Currently there does not seem to be a way to find out about the install location of GraphViz.
Additional Information

[arif] I have added a new key
  "HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/AT&T LabsResearch/InstallationPath"
to the graphviz.msi. You can see it at tomorrow's development snapshot.

Thanks so much for your help.
I suggest to use "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" instead of HKCU to make this work in a multi user environment.

You are right.I will change it to local machine.


I just downloaded graphviz-2.21.20081020.0445.msi and installed it via "graphviz-2.21.20081020.0445.msi REINSTALLMODE=vomus REINSTALL=ALL"
The registry key however is not generated. Is bug 1490 supposed to be fixed in this driver?
