Hi Stefan,

There is easy solution: revert back to use separate component for
registry keys, but mark component to use parent folder as keypath. To
do this just add KeyPath='yes' to Component element and remove
KeyPath='yes' from RegistryKey element. I've tested it and it seems to
fix all problems described in your blogpost [1]. Did you considered
this solution?
