(Default) values must be REG_SZ on Windows 95

The indicated registry value has an empty name, indicating that it must be stored as the (default) value of its parent key. However, its data type is not REG_SZ. This will cause its installation to fail on Windows 95.


Windows 95 restricts (default) registry values to REG_SZ. This restriction does not apply to subsequent Windows versions.


If the (default) registry value must be installed on Windows 95, you should change its data type to REG_SZ. If it does not have to be installed on Windows 95, you should assign it to a component that will not be installed on Windows 95.
