I'm finding posts on this back to v10, so I'm surprised it hasn't been addressed yet.

Issue: Registry edit actions that delete keys or values will fail if the key or value doesn't exist. There is no "Delete if Exists" option, and although one might assume that is the default, it isn't.

Workaround: Any registry edit that involves deleting a registry key or value must be its own action and must be set in one of the following ways:
1. Requirement that the registry key exist, or
2. Set to continue on fail.

I have two questions:
1. When will this be addressed so that "Delete if Exists" is an option (or the logical default)?
2. Which of my two workaround causes less overhead for the agent? We're currently working on a performance optimization effort with Novell and I want to pick the one that works the fastest.
