[Solved]RegDelete() Not working well...

Recommended Posts

WannaLearn

First of all, I know, and I'm sorry that there were similar questions relate to this topic.

However, I wasn't able to solve the problem by myself.

Also, English is not my first language, so please be generous(?) on some mistakes in communication.

#NoTrayIcon
#RequireAdmin
;~ #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
Global Const $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE = -3

Opt("MustDeclareVars", 1)
If @OSVersion = 'win_7' Then
    _W7IEicon()
Else
    MsgBox(16,"Error","This program is for Window7 only",10)
EndIf


Func _W7IEicon()

    Local $sIE,$bGen,$bDel,$msg,$sReg,$sReg2
    
    $sReg2 = '\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace\{871C5380-42A0-1069-A2EA-08002B30302D}'
    If @OSArch = "X64" Then
        $sIE = '"C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"'
        $sReg = "HKCR64\CLSID\{871C5380-42A0-1069-A2EA-08002B30302D}"
        $sReg2 = 'HKLM64' & $sReg2
    Else
        $sIE = '"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe"'
        $sReg = "HKCR\CLSID\{871C5380-42A0-1069-A2EA-08002B30302D}"
        $sReg2 = 'HKLM' & $sReg2
    EndIf

    GuiCreate("",130,75,@DesktopWidth / 2 - 103/2, @DesktopHeight / 2 - 75/2)
    $bGen = GUICtrlCreateButton("Make Icon",10,10,110)
    $bDel = GUICtrlCreateButton("Delete Icon",10,40,110)
    GUISetState()
    
    While 1

        $msg = GUIGetMsg()

        Select
        Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            ExitLoop

        Case $msg = $bGen
            
            RegDelete($sReg)
            RegWrite($sReg,'','REG_SZ','Internet Explorer')
            RegWrite($sReg,'InfoTip','REG_SZ','@C:\Windows\System32\ieframe.dll,-881')
            RegWrite($sReg2)

        Case $msg = $bDel
            RegDelete($sReg)
            RegDelete($sReg2)

        EndSelect
        
    WEnd
EndFunc

It generate IE icon without any problem.

However, when I press "Delete Icon" button, the folder icon named "Internet Explorer" remains.

I have looked up the registry and found out that

HKCR\CLSID\{871C5380-42A0-1069-A2EA-08002B30302D}

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace\{871C5380-42A0-1069-A2EA-08002B30302D}

were not deleted.

I was able to delete those keys manually with the registry editor.

When I delete the second key (HKML one), the icon on the desktop disappears successfully.

I already tried followings:

1. turn off the anti-virus program

2. instead of using variables, tried both RegDelete('HKLM\... & RegDelete('HKLM64\...

3. turn off the UAO

is there something that I'm missing??

Edited : simplified and removed most of "RegWrite()" lines to show more clearly.

as posted below, the problem have solved by UPDATING to AUTOIT3.3.6.0 from autoit3.3.4.0

Oh, I also have tried the following code...

which showed me a popup box saying that

errors = -2

Extended = 2

#RequireAdmin

RegDelete("HKLM64\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace\{871C5380-42A0-1069-A2EA-08002B30302D}")
$Err = @Error
$Ext = @Extended
Sleep(100)
MsgBox(0,"errors","error= "&$Err&@CRLF&"Extended= "&$Ext)

Problem solved....

by updating to the latest version of autoit3.3.6.0

I was using 3.3.4.0 before...

Bytheway, how to modify the title of prior post as solved???

It seems like I can not modify what I posted earlier.

WannaLearn,

You need a certain number of posts before some of the board functions become activated. However with a nickname like yours I cannot imagine that will take too long! :(

Glad you solved your problem yourself - always more satisfying that way. :)

Welcome to the forums and please be patient with M23, we haven't got him fully trained yet.

Go to the original post, click "EDIT" and then click the "Use Full Editor" button. That should allow you to modify the thread title.

It seems like I don't have a enough authority for edit yet... since I can't find a "EDIT" button.

Thank you anyway :idea:

ps. after the 5th post, now I can edit my posts

thank you

Sure I have, but your name came out of the hat. I can picture Jos wiping his brow in relief because on a day like this it's usually his name that comes popping out.
