Delete registry key only if its empty

Recommended Posts

Hi. Just as topic name says, I need to delete registry key only if its empty. There is this topic:

But no, I don't know all the values that would possibly exist in this key. So any other way?

Have you looked at RegEnumKey or RegEnumVal to find all possible keys/values in the helpfile?

Yes, thanks. Was able to come up with a solution:

RegEnumKey ('HKCU\Software\techPowerUp', 1)
$nokeys=(@error=-1)
RegEnumVal ('HKCU\Software\techPowerUp', 1)
$novalues=(@error=-1)
If $nokeys And $novalues Then RegDelete ('HKCU\Software\techPowerUp') 

I was trying to delete empty "techPowerUp" key. With the above code, it deletes only if there are no keys and values in it. Let the code be here for anyone who needs it since I wasn't able to find an answer when I searched.
