export registry value (not complete key)

4 posts in this topic

Hi,

I want to export a single registry value.

i.e. its the reg_sz value "wallpaper" in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop

if I call regedit /e C:\wallpaper.reg HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTHKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop, it exports ALL existing values in the desktop-key.

But I only want to export the single wallpaper value. How can I do that with AutoIT?

Hello svatvn,

Have you tried RegRead()?

$wallpaper = RegRead('HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop','Wallpaper')
MsgBox(0,'Wallpaper path',$wallpaper)

hi realm,

yes I tried, but how can I tell AutoIt to export the value?

for example I want to have a wallpaper.reg file with the content like:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]
"Wallpaper"="D:\\wallpaper.jpg"

Svatvn,

I am not sure I understand what your attempting to do. Assuming I have read your last post correctly, it appears you want to find the registry value, then write out to a file and have it appear as you have written it in the code box. If this is correct this might point you into a better direction:

$regAddress = 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop'
$regKey = 'Wallpaper'

$regPath = RegRead($regAddress,$regKey)

$file = FileOpen(@DesktopDir & '\wallpaper.reg',1) ;1 will append end of file. Change to 2 if you want file overwritten.
FileWrite($file,'Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00' & @CRLF & @CRLF _
              & '[' & $regAddress & ']' & @CRLF _
              & '"' & $regKey & '"="' & $regPath & '"')
FileClose($file)
