I search how to find a string in a regread function.

Do you have some example?. Anyway, maybe this example could help to you:

$var = RegRead("HKLM\SOFTWARE\AutoIt v3\AutoIt", "Version") ;First read the content of the value name
$stringToSearch = "3.3" ;Search what you need
$result = StringRegExp($var,$stringToSearch) ;Here we check if our pattern ($stringToSearch) exists

If $result = 1 Then
    MsgBox(0,"","I've found the string " & $stringToSearch & " on the following text: " & $var)
Else
    MsgBox(0,"","Sorry but I didn't find the string " & $stringToSearch & " on the following text: " & $var)
EndIf

You got lucky on that RegExp. Technically it's incorrect although when searching that particular key it will work.

EDIT: You can easily fix the problem with this added line

$stringToSearch = "3.3" ;Search what you need
$stringToSearch = StringRegExpReplace($stringToSearch, "([.?\\\[\]\(\)\{\}^])", "\\$1");; Escape special characters, I may have missed some though

You are right, it was just a quick example but thanks for show us the right way. Anyway, I'm going to start learning PCRE (I've already downloaded your PCRE Toolkit to practice hehe) because I always get stuck trying to figure out what's the best RegEx to accomplish the goal ;-).

Thank you again (for the answer and for your toolkit).

Glad to hear you are trying the toolkit, although you should remember it still beta. I have another update ready now but it won't be uploaded until tomorrow.

Edit. It also could be done quite simple by using

$result = StringRegExp($var,"\Q" & $stringToSearch & "\E")
