Yeah I guess so, but I didn't have garbage all the time (remember I wrote that 
it succeeded when running with WINEDEBUG=+msi). So if it was just returned as an 
empty string (or at least interpreted as such) a RegOpenKey would succeed on the 
parent of the GUID (Software\Microsoft\Installer\Products) which is most of the 
time there.
