Registry Variables

Recommended Posts

Wise112

Hello All,

I was wondering if it was at all possible to make a location within the registry a variable;

$var1 = PRINTER1

ie:

$port = RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Print\Printers\$var1", "Port")

If anyone could give me some direction it would be great!

I have managed to find a workaround which seems to be working;

Thanks all!

$printername = RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows","Device")

$printername = StringTrimRight($printername, 15)

$RegKey = "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Print\Printers\" & $printername & "\"

$RegKey2 = RegRead($regkey,"Port")

MsgBox(0, "Your Printer Port is ", $Regkey2)
