Need help with registry script

Recommended Posts

I need help with this script, basically I need to check the registry of multiple machines, check the registry for a match, and then write all the matches to a text file. The code I have will only work for the 1st, 3rd, and 7th. I can't figure out why its not consistent.

While $cnt < $num
$hostname = FileReadLine($hostnameFile)
While not @error
$var = RegEnumKey("\\"&$hostname&"\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall", $i)
If @error <> 0 then ExitLoop
$var2 = RegRead("\\"&$hostname&"\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\"&$var,"DisplayName")
If StringRegExp($var2, "(?-i)Redistributable", 0) == 1 Then
$var3 = RegEnumKey("\\"&$hostname&"\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall", $i)
$outLine = $var&","&$var2&","&$var3
$i += 1
$cnt +=1

1st 3rd and 7th what? Registry Checks? Computers? Tries?

My UDFs are generally for me. If they aren't updated for a while, it means I'm not using them myself. As soon as I start using them again, they'll get updated.

Sorry 1st 3rd and 7th computers. I can change the order in the list its reading from and it still works for in the same positions. It's not that computers are off, its not a security or permissions issue because I can take it out of the loop and put the hostnames in one at a time, and it works for all of them. I'm not sure why trying to loop through the file is messing it up.

I'd look into your second While loop, $i isn't being reset so it's constantly counting up.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
