I am looking for Developers for an AutoIT3 project to create a Working, Light-weight registry editor using AutoIT3.

1. It will not require an install

2. It will take command line arguments for Computer Name and Registry Key to open initially (both optional, of course)

3. It will have a robust search feature - hopefully including "search and delete" and "search and replace" though those may be on down the line.

4. I would like an "Edit in place" display instead of the "Modify" popup thing from Regedit. You are looking at the key and values, click edit and the values become editable.

5. "Favorites" are a must! Shortcuts to "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Uninstall" and other 'frequently used' locations that are not computer specific.

6. Search will be able to search entire registry or selected key.

7. It will NOT have to open the local registry and keep it open all the time.

It is going to target Computer and Network Administrators who know what they are doing.

I'm posting this to start the topic for work on this and to say :

If anyone knows of such a registry editor - save me some work and tell me about it!! ( O&O Registry Editor comes close, but no cookie. I've sent their developers some requests )

Got some simple code started. First obstacle will be to devise a way to keep track of the variables and how the correspond to registry keys.

I've gotten some great help from the following posts :

Easy Associative Arrays

Assign, Eval and Variables

What I have so far is just a nice Tree-View of a registry.

Up next to work on :

Displaying data of hilighted key on the Right side

Make the "Hotkeys" menu work properly (open registry key)

Connect to remote computer registry

; A Better Techie Registry GUI
; The goal is to make a portable Registry Viewer and Editor
; that will offer several features to techies
; Registry Search (Entire Registry and Selected Key)
; SAFE Search and Replace and Search and Delete
; It takes a computer name as a command line argument
; a second command line for the registry key to open to
; both are optional
#include <AssocArray.au3> ; What I saved OHB's x function as.

Moving right along.

I've got the Hotkeys working like I want - maybe not like expected, but like I want...

Got the right-side display working.

Got connect to computer working.

Started to set up editing.... just not sure how I want to proceed. Edit section at the bottom or try for Right Click editing??

Search is probably a long way away... and have not done stress testing to discover bugs...

If anyone wants to take a look at the code and make suggestions, improvements, etc... Please do! :mellow:

_GUICtrlTreeView_DeleteAll is not working properly!

Almost nothing in the _GUICtrlTreeView (GuiTreeView.au3) is working as expected.

And I keep forgetting to use the ",2" with "Assign" to make it Global!! DOAH!!

Aaaarrrgghhh!!!

Don't mix GUICtrlCreateTreeView* internal functions with _GUICtrlTreeView_* UDF functions unless you know exactly what you are doing. That's why you're having problems with some things.

Hi!

I am interested in this project, but I can't use the source code because the config file is missing. Can you post it? (But for me it would be better not to use a config file.)

Regards

Thomas

I am trying to implement the code into my script, and I almost finished. But there is still only one problem:

I have "Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)" set, so the GuiGetMsg() function won't work. I am trying to "convert" the whole While thing to GUIRegisterMsg(WM_COMMAND,... something, but I am only a newbie at AutoIt. Can please someone help?

BTW, I am working on the editing part of Graywalker's script, I hope I can produce something that you will like.:blink:

Hi!

I am interested in this project, but I can't use the source code because the config file is missing. Can you post it? (But for me it would be better not to use a config file.)

Regards

Thomas

I use a config file to make it totally portable (no install) and highly customizable. Below is the contents of bkconfig.ini

## RegEditBK Configuration File
## Double hash = comments
## ! = HotKeys entry
## ~ = Registry Key for Left-side TreeView
## " = beginning of title or label text
## If you are using "Edit : Options" you must close this
## file before continuing. :D


## Hotkeys - current max entries = 20
! HKLM\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\UNINSTALL " WIN UNINSTALL
! HKLM\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\RUN "HKLM Run
! HKCU\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\RUN "HKCU Run

## Registry Tree View - current max entries = 20
## This will allow you to control the order of keys displayed
~ HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
~ HKEY_CURRENT_USER "HKEY_CURRENT_USER
~ HKEY_USERS "HKEY_USERS
~ HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT
~ HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG "HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG
## Example extra entry : 
## ~ HKLM\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\RUN "HKLM Windows Run

Work has been hectic... patches! patches! patches!!

Would it be possible to do some sort of "track changes" function? Like scan the registry once, user does something, scan a second time and display the keys that changed?


#include <ByteMe.au3>

It would be possible - but not within the scope of the project. I want to keep it simple, small and quick.

Plus, I don't think you'd need to do that very often and tools already exist. For what you are asking, I would use windiff or winmerge. Remote to the registry, export it as a .reg file, let the user do their thing, refresh and export the registry again, then use Winxxx to compare the two files.

Hi!

I would like to post my "version" of your code. I made "some" modifications to fit my needs, but it is still having issues - the treeview "hides" the subkeys if I click on their "parent" key or even I can make disappear the whole treeview by clicking on it in an appropiate way.

I added a registry searching function - I borrowed the code from here:

http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=9588 - _RegSearch

Unfortunately it is VERY slow... Would be better to find a faster code.

So my modified code:

I would like to ask any of you to help me (and Graywalker) to make better the code, especially fix the issues with the treeview... As you can see I am newbie at autoit. And sorry for my english if it's not the best (not just here but in the code too:) ).

Haven't really had a chance to work on this any more, but just wanted to express my frustration at how most registry editors make you search the WHOLE registry instead of just the one key you know the subkey or value should be in... grrr...

Re-inspiring me to start back to work on this.

Getting a Lot closer to working the way I want it to!

New layout.

Almost to the actual Editing and adding of values and the adding/deleting of keys.

Not yet active :

* Search (within selected)

* Find and Replace (within selected)

* Find and Delete (need to figure out safe way to do this)

Config file has not changed (see above posts)

Here is the Latest code :

; A Better Techie Registry GUI
; The goal is to make a portable Registry Viewer and Editor
; that will offer several features to techies
; Registry Search (Entire Registry and Selected Key)
; SAFE Search and Replace and Search and Delete
; It takes a computer name as a command line argument
; a second command line for the registry key to open to
; both are optional
#include <AssocArray.au3> ; What I saved OHB's x function as.
Opt("ExpandVarStrings", 1)

Global $ScriptName, $computername, $regkey
Global $valarray[7], $keyarray[4]


For $i = 1 To $CmdLine[0]
    Select
        Case $i = 1
            $computername = $CmdLine[1]
        Case $i = 2
            $regkey = $CmdLine[2]
    EndSelect
Next

If $computername = "" Then $computername = @ComputerName
If $regkey = "" Then $regkey = "HKLM"

;MsgBox(0,"test",$ScriptName & @CRLF & $computername & @CRLF & $regkey)
