Write Registry Action
Root key: The root registry key/hive to access.
Subkey: The subkey to access (for instance, Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion), required. Any subkeys that don't exist will be created when creating values.
Value name: The value to create/update or delete (optional). The default value is updated if an empty string is entered. To delete the subkey and all child keys/values, enter 5 asterisk characters, ***** (Important: be careful with this, as all keys and values below the subkey will be recursively deleted).
Delete the value: If checked, the registry key or value is deleted if it exists.
Value type: Type of value to create (string or DWORD).
Value data: The data to write to the registry value (required unless deleting).

This option is only available in the 32-bit edition of Visual Build and has no effect on 32-bit Windows or shared registry keys in 64-bit Windows (for more information, see Registry Keys Affected by WOW64).
