With nLite its easy to make registry tweak addons, you need Reg2inf to convert your regtweaks from .reg to .inf format, then you create a Entries_whatever.ini (where it says whatever you can put any name you want there, like regtweaks) with something like this

[general]
builddate=2010/03/26
description=Describe your regtweak addon.
language=Multilanguage
title=Addon Name
version=0.0.0
website=http://www.example.com

[registry_addreg]
; Here is where you add your INF converted regtweaks
HKLM,"SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows","Test",0,"Oh"

Now you compress your Entries_whatever.ini with your favorite archiver: rar, cab, zip or 7z and finally you integrate it

To verify your regtweaks were added to your XP install expand I386\nLite.in_ to view your tweaks

Thanks so much mate for responding.

Does this look correct for the Entries_whatever.ini?

Look perfect...place it in its own folder or compress it (do not leave the word Entries in the filename of the archive) and integrate it with nLite

The reason I tell you to put it in its own folder or not to name your compressed addon with "Entries" is because nLite will copy the ENTIRE contents of the directory in which its located

Example, if you place Entries_regtweaks.7z (compressed .ini archive) or the uncompressed Entries_regtweaks.ini in the same directory as your addon nLite will grab all your addons and copy them to the rvmtmp dir...this will not break your session or neither will it integrate the addons, it just adds time to your session

So rename your compressed regtweaks addon to something like JAMIS_RegTweaks.7z

OH and BTW if the HKCU regtweaks may not take...they may or they might not, sometimes you need to apply them for each new user login. But you test it see if they apply

Well, I have tested the addon and it's applying once windows is installed perfectly.

Thanks a lot mate for responding with helpful guidance, much appreciated.
