let's say "one.reg" is a reg

let's say "one.reg" is a reg entry from "HKCU\Software\One" and "two.reg" is a reg entry from "HKCU\Software\two".
This could should do the trick:

[Activate]
Registry=true

[RegistryKeys]
one=HKCU\Software\one
two=HKCU\Software\two

More info can be found here.

Yes, I set the working directory!

Admin Rights

You can't write to HKLM without admin rights. If your app requires them to be modified, you need to turn admin on in the launcher so it can request admin rights as it starts.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

RunAsAdmin

RunAsAdmin. It's part of the [Launch] section:
https://portableapps.com/manuals/PortableApps.comLauncher/ref/launcher.i...

If it's required by the app, you need to RunAsAdmin. If it's not required by the app but will be created (and should be removed) if the app happens to be run as admin, you don't need RunAsAdmin.

I removed your duplicate thread. We're already discussing it here. No need to create another thread on the same topic.
