[jitsi-dev] Jitsi registry key


#1

Hey

I just noticed the following registry key:
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Jitsi\StartMenuShortcut

Is that created by the installer to remember if the Startmenu shortcut
should be recreated?
If so, it should
- clearly not be below the Microsoft subkey
- and be under HKLM as the installation is system-wide

Regards,
Ingo

Hello, Ingo!

I just noticed the following registry key:
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Jitsi\StartMenuShortcut

Unfortunately, it does not seem to be the only one. There are DesktopShortcut, StartMenuShortcut and StartupShortcut.

Is that created by the installer to remember if the Startmenu shortcut
should be recreated?

Yes, this is related to a limitation of either Windows Installer or WiX.

If so, it should
- clearly not be below the Microsoft sub key

Sure, it does not seem OK.

- and be under HKLM as the installation is system-wide

Yes, HKLM sounds better than HKCU.

Thank you for being thorough (as always)!
