Issues executing in silent mode a .reg file

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I having issues scripting the execution of a single .reg file into an installation sequence that will basically do the following 3 things:

1- Run the installation as Admin of the application that it seems been a straight forward without Next Next clicks on it.

2- Run a CMD that will register some DLL / OCX files

3- Modify an existent key created after the installation of the same software located into :

Path: HKLM64\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\BOSS\


Type: REG_SZ

New Value: 6.1

I checked that the Last ShellExecute string doesn't seems to apply the change. So the application doesn't opens at all.

My code is the following:


#Region ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****



#EndRegion ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****

#Include <File.au3>

#Include <Array.au3>

Local $sUserName = "User"

Local $sPassword = "Password"


WinWait("Boss - 6.0.0", "Boss Setup is performing the requested operations")

WinActivate("Boss - 6.0.0", "Boss Setup is performing the requested operations")


ShellExecute("regedit.exe", '/s "' & @DesktopDir & 'BossENG.reg"')

Any Ideas on what can be changed to the code so I can have this Reg file to be done ??

I will really appreciate any help.

Thanks and kind Regards.

ShellExecute("regedit.exe", '/s "' & @DesktopDir & 'BossENG.reg"')


ShellExecute("regedit.exe", '/s "' & @DesktopDir & 'BossENG.reg"')

You see, you forgot the backslash (). One word and we are back to the business baby... Just a line I remember from a film I saw. :bike:

Good day...


:bye: Hey there, was I helpful?
