Thanks for the update.
The reason behind this is good one. But in some Antivirus settings there is
an option to deny to write Run/RunOnce Registry entry. I noticed this
option in OfficeScan. So, if this setting is enabled, even the normal
installation also will be blocked by Antivirus.
I know this should be handled from Antivirus configuration side. But, it is
not possible to convey to all or some users at every time of release, like
our setup will create startup registry entry, if it is denied in AV, then
exclude this setup/option in AV settings.

So, my opinion is it would be better if WiX burn has an option to skip this
registry entry creation. If user wants can set this or can exclude this.
