I am a newbie in XPI development. I have created XPI which contains NPAPI plugin dll. I want to create registry entry at "HKLM\Software\MozillaPlugins\<Plugin_Name>\Path".

I am using Gecko 1.9 and want to have create above registry when user will install my XPI. The XPI structure is -XPI install.rdf plugins\napapiplugin.dll

Is there any way to do it from install.rdf. Or do I need to have a JS file which will write the registry..? If yes, how to call such function from this JS file..?
