I am a developer, primarily working on .NET applications and the Genesys Contact Centre Framework, as well as some Java apps when I am being punished.

I have a BSc (Hons) in Computer Science, and have worked commercially in C, C#, Java, VB6, VB .NET, HTML, T-SQL, Javascript, VBScript, PowerShell, NSIS, and Batch (I love batch!!). I also have a keen interest in TFS, especially the build WorkFlow.

comment HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT does not contain contents of HKEY_CURRENT_USER
The Microsoft Support case came to naught in the end. Our final workaround is to install the application for all users. This ensures that the registry information is written to HKLM, rather than HKCU, which seems to be more reliable. Not ideal, but it's the best we can do :(

Thanks for the answer, but that key exists for me so I think I have a different issue.

Note that after investigating further, a restart will not always resolve this issue, and the user needs to have their registry keys manually edited - not great. We've opened a Microsoft support case on this, and I'll update the answer when I get one from them.

I would, but it's not really a good answer - my understanding is that the PCs should not need to be restarted to ensure that the registry hives are correctly in sync. I'll mark it as answered if my percentage goes too low!
