5. Add String Value to KotOR2 Key: "Path" (no quotes) with data set to "C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Knights of the Old Republic II\" (no quotes) on 32-bit Windows, "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Knights of the Old Republic II\" on 64-bit windows.

If you properly create TSL's registry key, then Kotor Tool will have no problem detecting TSL.
This has worked for TSL, but I'm still having problems getting KotOR Tool to detect the steam installation of KotOR I. I've tried doing the same process, adding the key, "KOTOR" instead of "KotOR2", and having the string value "Path" under that point to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\swkotor\", but that doesn't work. I've also tried manually entering the path in KotOR Tool, but that doesn't work either. Thoughts?


EDIT: Solved it thanks to tk102's post.

1. Open regedit
2. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ on 32 Bit Windows, or HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node on 64 Bit Windows.
3. Add Key: "BioWare" (no quotes)
4. Add Key to BioWare Key: "SW" (no quotes)
5. Add Key to SW Key: "KOTOR" (no quotes)
5. Add String Value to KOTOR Key: "Path" (no quotes) with data set to "C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\swkotor\" (no quotes) on 32-bit Windows, "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\swkotor\" on 64-bit windows.
