unsure what data I am getting

Recommended Posts

I am not sure what I am getting when I issue these commands. I was expecting to see "7.50" or "7.70" not "117440562" or "117440582". It doesn't look like HEX, so what is it?

What I am trying to do is to find a way to say if this reg key is there, this do this else if this reg key is there, do this other thing.

MsgBox(0,"java 7.50",RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{26A24AE4-039D-4CA4-87B4-2F83217005FF}","Version"))

MsgBox(0,"java 7.70",RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{26A24AE4-039D-4CA4-87B4-2F83217007FF}","Version"))

Hi,

And what is the reg type of the key you want to read? Check if the value is the one you expect to have.

Br, FireFox.

You have to interpret the value you get from RegRead. According to the docu @extended holds the type of the value.

$Value = RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionUninstall{26A24AE4-039D-4CA4-87B4-2F83217005FF}","Version")
If @error then Exit MsgBox(0, "Error", "Error reading the registry: " & @error)
$iType = @extended
Switch $iType
    Case <value>
        ; $Value = statement
    Case Else
        ; $Value = statement
EndSwitch
MsgBox(0,"java 7.50", $Value)

Use DisplayVersion instead of Version for the key name.


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 wanted to give an update and I have finished the script. I did use the DisplayVerison. I didn't realize that I was using the wrong reg key. Once I figured that out, the rest was simple. Thanks for all the help. It really was a Monday.
