In Software Signature Definition it is possible to search value in registry for a fixed path/name :

Example :

<registry name="HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL12.INSTANCE_CORE\Setup" match="Express Edition" arch="64" />

Name attribute should contain a fixed registry path/name
But Name attribute does not support POSIX regular expression.

Is it possible to add support of POSIX regular expression for name attribute of registry tag ?

Example :

<registry name="HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL12.*\Setup" match="Express Edition" arch="64" />

Look for Setup="Express Edition" under all registry keys like HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL12.*
