if they are good that shouldn't be a problem...

It's tedious to do when you end up grabbing thousands of keys, and the tooling bugs you deal with won't show you all the keys it grabbed and/or it crashes when building the .MSI project because of certain registry value content, which can show up anywhere in those couple thousand keys. (Good Hunting!) You have to take those out, build the project, then go put them back in in the .MSI.

You were saying something about knowing the tools, and the bugs?

Yeah, about that signing thing. Not everyone does it, especially said nameless vendor, even though MS pushes it and now tries to make it as mandatory as possible. I've run into more than one occasion where vendor signing certs are expired. Yada, yada, yada, ...

Those are fun phone calls when you tell them and they go scrambling to renew it, rebuild, and get you new source, 'cause, you know, deadlines.
