  • Use system search to get the computer name..ie read the env variable.. then use a vb script to write registry depending on the computer name..

The best method is always to go native. 

Create two components with your own naming convention.  For example:

A001RegistryData – containing the registry data for A001 computers

A002RegistryData – containing the registry data for A002 computers

Create a condition on each as follows:

For the component named A001RegistryData

Put a condition of: ComputerName << A001

-------------------------------------------------- -

For the component named A002RegistryData

Put a condition of: ComputerName << A002

-------------------------------------------------- -

<<  means the left string starts with the right string.

This is a native method that requires no scripting, custom actions and is simple to do and
Should work fine.


 BTW: ComputerName is a standard MSI private property, no system search required.
