Issue

The Write to System task was completed but in the CM tool log there is an error like this:

|Exception occurred while writing System Registry.||Business
17:16:42:839||Information||None||System Registry||Exception Message An error occurred while parsing EntityName. Line 5329, position 33..||Business

_____________________________________________________________
Root Cause

The error was during Write to System due to an invalid character - ampersand "&" in the Registry.xml 
Part of the registry with the offending entry:
<Value name="Installation Date & Time" value="30/04/2019 14:56:42" type="String" />
_____________________________________________________________
Proposed Solution

Extract the archive and remove the line from the registry.xml and then zip again.
The line number to be removed is going to be in the CM Tool log error message.
For instance: 
17:16:42:839||Information||None||System Registry||Exception Message An error occurred while parsing EntityName. Line 5329, position 33..||Business
