This article was previously published under Q174328


Microsoft Systems Management Server Installer is unable to read or modify multi-string registry values. If a value is added or changed, only the first line of the multi-string data value is written.


Systems Management Server Installer currently does not have the capability to read or write complete multi-string registry values.


Use an external utility designed for editing multi-string registry values. Execution of such utilities can be accomplished within Systems Management Server Installer by using the Execute Program script item.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Systems Management Server Installer 1.0.
