Infopulse PACE Suite, bug report, .REG import 2
Importing a .REG containing a reference to a property, e.g.
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\[ProductCode]]
"StubPath"="MSIEXEC /FUP [ProductCode]" /QB!
results in a slightly mangled entry for the value:
MSIEXEC /FUP [\ProductCode[\]]" /QB!
[\Value[\]]) ensures delivering the original registry values to the target system with the MSI package. During the MSI installation, the escaped value
[\Value[\]]will be installed to the system as
[Value], that is fully corresponds to its original state. Not escaped values (like
[Value]) will be replaced with the property, if such property exists, otherwise with the empty string. In most cases, captured registry contains values in square brackets that do not correspond to standard MSI properties and escaping such values secures delivering original (unchanged) registry values to the target system.
If you want to integrate Active Setup to your MSI package during building, just tick one checkbox in MSI Generator settings and Active Setup will be added automatically. See section 184.108.40.206 'Add Active Setup' in https://pacesuite.com/release/5.3.0/PACE-Suite-5.3.0-Getting-started.pdf
If you want to import REG file with MSI properties and process them as properties without escaping square brackets, use Import registry wizard of MSI Editor for this. There you can control how to save such values. See section 220.127.116.11 'Import Registry' in https://pacesuite.com/release/5.3.0/PACE-Suite-5.3.0-Getting-started.pdf
Note that MSI Generator could not have such option because it is used for building not only MSI packages, but also MSIX, APPX, APPV, THINAPP.

P.S. It seems that your REG file has wrong format as
/QB! parameter goes after the quotation mark. Correct REG file format is
