I have an XP application that has a number of keys set via GPP, otherwise it prompts the user to manually enter this information. This is written to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\AppX
When on an Windows7 machine this GPP is ineffective. If I run the app and enter the information manually it writes to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\VirtualStore\MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\AppX.
If I add a new GPP that writes to the with the same information that gets set during the manual process the application fails to load the keys and won't launch until I've deleted the GPP keys and manually enter the information. If I delete the key and run an exported reg file it works.
What options do I have to make this work? a logon scrip with the reg file? if it's something the developer needs to change when building the exe, what should I ask for?
