desc[pn]=['Installs Adobe Audition.<br /><br />Create and edit audio with ease. <br /> <br /> ']
cmd1[pn]=['"%systemdrive%\INSTALL\\APPLICATIONS\\ADOBE\\ADOBE AUDITION\\ADOBE AUDITION 1.0\\AUDITION.MSI" /QR"']
cmd2[pn]=['"REGEDIT /S %systemdrive%\\install\\AUDITION.reg"']

Why is there only one \ in front of INSTALL and then two \\ in front of the next install (not in capital letter)?

The correct entry for a registry entry after a programme has been installed is

rega[pn]=['%systemdrive%\\install\\AUDITION.reg']

the rest is added automatically by WPI. So you dont need the register /s in there.

Put this in after your cmd1 line

prog[pn]=['Adobe Audition']
desc[pn]=['Installs Adobe Audition.<br /><br />Create and edit audio with ease. <br /> <br /> ']
cmd1[pn]=['"%systemdrive%\\INSTALL\\APPLICATIONS\\ADOBE\\ADOBE AUDITION\\ADOBE AUDITION 1.0\\AUDITION.MSI" /QR"']
rega[pn]=['%systemdrive%\\install\\AUDITION.reg']
dflt[pn]=['yes']
cat[pn]=['Adobe Software']
ordr[pn]=[1]
uid[pn]=['audition']
pn++

BritishBulldog wrote the 'correct' way to do it.

however, bonedaddy's method will work as well.

think of the the regb and rega commands as putting in the "regedit /s " part, and you only have to fill in the file path.
