Summary0001493: Latest Windows installer changed registry key names
Description



With Graphviz 2.16, the installer created the following registry
key/value:



  HKLM\SOFTWARE\ATT\Graphviz\InstallPath=...



With this version of Graphviz, the installer now creates this one
instead:



  HKLM\SOFTWARE\AT&T Labs Research\InstallationPath=...



The pydot package (http://code.google.com/p/pydot [^]) relies on this
key to find Graphviz tools. Because of the change this is now broken.



I don't understand why this key had to change. In fact, I think that
removing the "Graphviz" part goes against established conventions.
TagsNo tags attached.
