Capturing Registry Uninstall String when a {} is present

Recommended Posts

BillyNelson

 I am attempting to capture an uninstall string from the registry. So long as I am capturing the values in a key that isn't wrapped in {} it works fine. When it is wrapped in {} it returns blank.

$Reg = "HKLM\SOFTWARE\"
$var = RegRead($Reg & "Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{0D94F75A-0EA6-4951-B3AF-B145FA9E05C6}", "UninstallString")
MsgBox(4096, "Program files are in:", $var)

Any help here would be greatly appreciated.

You might have to change:

$Reg = "HKLM\SOFTWARE\"

to:

$Reg = "HKLM64\SOFTWARE\"

if you are running a 64 bit OS.

I have confirmed that the string is in the 32 bit portion of the registry.

Hello,

I have confirmed that the string is in the 32 bit portion of the registry.

 

if You want read 32bit registry from 64bit, to use: "Wow6432Node" beetween $aKey a $bKey, like:
HKLMSOFTWAREWow6432NodeMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionUninstall

allso read 64bit registry from 32bit app:

HKLM64SOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionUninstall

and my some script for example :) (works well on both)

#Region ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Compile_Both=y
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Change2CUI=y
#EndRegion ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****
$search="{*}"
$aKey = "HKLM\SOFTWARE"
$bKey = "Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\"
$timer=TimerInit()
$OsArch=StringRight(@OSArch, 2)
$script=86
If @AutoItX64 Then $script=64
If $script <> $OsArch Then
    $aKey = StringRegExpReplace($aKey, "(\\)", "64\\", 1)
    $AllValues=":X" & $OsArch & @CRLF & ReadValues($aKey & "\" & $bKey)
Else
    $AllValues=":X" & $OsArch & @CRLF & ReadValues($aKey & "\" & $bKey)
EndIf
If $OsArch = 64 Then $AllValues&=@CRLF & ":X86" & @CRLF & ReadValues($aKey & "\Wow6432Node\" & $bKey)
Func ReadValues($hKey)
    Local $instance=1, $var, $name, $Values
    While 1
        $subKey=RegEnumKey($hKey, $instance)
        If @error Then ExitLoop
        $instance+=1
        $var = RegRead($hkey & $subKey, "UninstallString")
        If Not $var Then ContinueLoop
        $name = RegRead($hkey & $subKey, "DisplayName")
        $Values&="Name: " & $name & "; String: " & $var & @CRLF & @CRLF
    WEnd
    Return $Values
EndFunc
$Values=""
$instance=StringRegExp($AllValues, "(?m)(.*{.*})$|(?m)(:...)$", 3)
For $w=0 To UBound($instance)-1
    $Values&=$instance[$w] & @CRLF
Next
$instance=0
$AutoItVer="    AutoIt X" & $script & " Ver: " & @AutoItVersion & " (OsArch: X" & $OsArch & ")"
ConsoleWrite($AutoItVer & @CRLF & $AllValues & @CRLF)
MsgBox(0,"Time: " & TimerDiff($timer)/1000 & " s.","                    " & $AutoItVer & @CRLF & $Values & @CRLF)

Greetings.

P.S. sorry for my poor English
