RegEdit Jumper

1 post in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

First, I want to explain, that I did not develop that actual function that jumps around in the 'Registry Editor', I just spiced it up with a small Interface to increase it's functionality.

I concepted this example based on Yashied's _RegJump(). In Yashied's example the _RegJump() function opens a registry editor in the specified hive.

I have added a GUI with a combo bar, that starts with the basic keys, and as you choose the key, it will enumerate sub-keys into the combo box until you have found the registry you wish to jump to, or another input option if you know exactly where you need to look.

Hope you find it as useful, as have I.

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

Local $keyString, $regExist = 0

$regJumpGUI = GUICreate("Registry Jumper",600,125,(@DesktopWidth-600)/2,0)

GUICtrlCreateLabel("Choose and Enumerate Keys until you have found the spot you would like to open Registry Editor at:",10,10)
$select_Root = GUICtrlCreateCombo("HKCR",10,32,530)
GUICtrlSetData(-1,"HKCU|HKLM|HKU|HKCC")

$open_RegEdit_fromRoot = GUICtrlCreateButton("Open",550,30,40)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("If you know the exact location you want to jump to enter here:",10,60)

$select_Jump = GUICtrlCreateInput("HKCR.txt",10,80,530)

$open_RegEdit_fromJump = GUICtrlCreateButton("Open",550,80,40)

Edit: Cleaned it up to make it more readable, and change the format of the msg loop to a switch. I also forgot to include a brief description.

Edit 2: Removed a duplicated 'WEnd' statement in code.
