regwrite a registry dword value

8 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

i am looking at a remote pc registry entry

$reg = RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Printers\Office12-HP4350DTN\PrinterDriverData", "Forms?")

it returns a value of "2173314341"

when i write that value

RegWrite("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Printers\Office14-HP4350DTN\PrinterDriverData", "Forms?", "REG_DWORD", $reg)

the value changes to "2147483648"

any ideas?

Is it a DWORD? Because the max value of a DWORD is 2147483647. Check the value again... is it a DWORD?

it is a DWORD.. so if that's the max value for a dword, how would i be able to write values that exceed that?

I am sorry... I am incorrect. ... just use Number($reg)

RegWrite("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Printers\Office14-HP4350DTN\PrinterDriverData", "Forms?", "REG_DWORD", Number($reg))

It's an unsigned 32-bit value, so the max value is 2^32 - 1 = 4294967295 (4Gig) = 0xFFFFFFFF:

$reg = 4294967295
RegWrite("HKCU\SOFTWARE\AutoIt v3", "TestData", "REG_DWORD", $reg)

:blink:

Edit: Larry already saved it! ;)

i am able to get the HEX value doing this:

Hex(int($reg))

but when i try to regwrite that as a value, it writes it as a string so its still wrong =/

RegWrite value "0x" & Hex(int($reg))
