How to Properly Modify Registry During Addin Installation

I have recently built an addin for SolidWorks, and I am working on an installer.
The goal is to let SolidWorks 'know' of the addin during installation; I want SolidWorks to recognize and load the addin the first time SolidWorks is run, post-installation, without any additional clicks from the end user.


I know to modify:


Software\SolidWorks\Addins\{class guid} in LOCAL MACHINE

Software\SolidWorks\AddInsStartup\{class guid} in CURRENT USER

and to register the assembly for COM.


It seems as if SW still doesn't recognize the addin. Can someone let me know what I am doing wrong?
