Applicaton Detection method multiple registry clauses And Connector not working

When several registry values are added in an Application (Script Deployment Type) under the Detection Method tab, when choosing "And" instead of "Or" (Connector column), I get the error 0x87D00324(-2016410844) in Software Center on the client which just means the app installed but the detection method failed.

If I use "Or" under the Connector column for all of the registry clauses after the first one, the app shows as installed in Software Center on the client. I verified all of the registry entries added as clauses exist on the client. Grouping the clauses after the first entry did not make a difference using "And" (Connector column) for all the clauses after the first entry.

Is it not possible to detect all registry values added as clauses if there are more than 2 registry key detection method clauses added? I've ran into this issue before in multiple environments.

    Hi, @Steve
    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Q&A forum.
    If all of the registry entries are added correctly, the "And" Connector should be useful.
    Did you try to test one registry entry at a time? And all registry keys are individually tested?
    And we may also check AppEnforce.log on client to see why the detection method fail.
