  From the keys present on my system I could add HTML Help, DirectDrawEx 
and some two versions of .NET Framework but I didn't know if it wouldn't 
interfere with some setup programs - e.g. they would claim the 
information is incomplete because the others subkeys of Active Setup are 
missing. Especially that it seems there is no official documentation of 
it. On the other hand from what I've found on some forums adding new 
keys is something what sysadmins sometimes do to run software for all 
users so it should be safe. But if it's better to add real keys I can 
change the patch.
