Decode REG_BINARY to ASCII (plain text)

7 posts in this topic

Does anyone have a concrete way of converting/decoding REG_BINARY?

The question doesn't make sense because REG_BINARY holds arbitrary data. Decoding requires knowing encoding scheme.

Other than that it's binary data.

Fair point. I am trying to parse Windows Shell Bags >> http://support.microsoft.com/kb/813711

try this little snippet from this >post.... (of course trash in - trash out)

(some string copied from >this  post are decoded for example ....) :)

edit:

sorry, I think I misunderstood the question :unsure:

Global $Text
While 1
    $Text = InputBox("Binary", "Enter binary string")
    If @error Then Exit
    MsgBox(0, "", _BinToText($Text))
WEnd

; Global $Text ="Hello"
; ConsoleWrite($Text & @CRLF)
; ConsoleWrite(_TextToBin($Text) & @CRLF)
; ConsoleWrite(_BinToText(_TextToBin($Text)) & @CRLF)

Func _TextToBin($Text)
    Local $Binary = ""
    For $i = 1 To StringLen($Text)
        $Binary &= _DecToBin(Asc(StringMid($Text, $i, 1)))
    Next
    Return $Binary
EndFunc   ;==>_TextToBin

Func _BinToText($Binary)
    Local $Text = ""
    For $i = 1 To StringLen($Binary) Step 8
        $Text &= Chr(_BinToDec(StringMid($Binary, $i, 8)))
    Next
    Return $Text
EndFunc   ;==>_BinToText

Func _DecToBin($Dec) ; from decimal to binary
    Local $sBinString = ""
    While $Dec
        $sBinString = BitAND($Dec, 1) & $sBinString
        $dec = BitShift($dec, 1)
    WEnd
    Return StringRight("00000000" & $sBinString, 8)
EndFunc   ;==>_DecToBin

Func _BinToDec($Bin) ; from binary to decimal
    Local $dec = 0
    For $i = 0 To StringLen($Bin) - 1
        $dec += 2 ^ $i * StringMid($Bin, StringLen($Bin) - $i, 1)
    Next
    Return $dec
EndFunc   ;==>_BinToDec

If all you want is the information about what's in there, and this isn't an exercise on how to decode the information, then you can use ShellBagsView from nirsoft.


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.

@Chimp - Thanks.

@BrewManNH - It's for an application I am working on over the summer.

      Good evening
      I was looking around the forum if I could find a function that allows to convert a string into a 2 dimensional array...
      The first column of the array is always the same, but the rows could change...
      I have a pattern like:

      Column A|Column B
      Static Text 1|Data 1
      Static Text 2|Data 2
      Static Text 3|Data 3
      Static Text 4|Data 4

      Where, Static Text (1...4) will be always the same, and I don't want to change them... But, Data 1...4 are dynamic fields... So, I could have the pattern above AND I coould have the pattern I'm going to show you right below

      Column A|Column B
      Static Text 1|Data 1
      Static Text 2|Data 2
      Static Text 3|Data 3
      Static Text 4|Data 4
      Static Text 1|Data 5
      Static Text 2|Data 6
      Static Text 3|Data 7
      Static Text 4|Data 8

      How can I do in this case?

      Thanks for everyone's help

      Hi,
      I wondered why negative integers I wrote into registry (e.g. negative x-coordinates of a gui if using two monitors and the right one is the main one) wouldn't return right when reading. Now I know: it is saved as an unsigned integer (without algebraic sign). So here is a snippet that is changing unsigned to signed integer:
      Global Const $g_sRegKey = "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\" & @ScriptName ; path to registry RegWrite($g_sRegKey, "Value", "REG_DWORD", -2147483647) ; write some negative integer into registry; -2147483647 highest possible negative integer , 2147483648 highest possible positive integer if talking of 32bit Local $sValue = RegRead($g_sRegKey, "Value") ; read out registry ConsoleWrite("Value: " & $sValue & @CRLF) ; show real value in console Local $sResult = _SignedInteger($sValue) ; change to signed value ConsoleWrite("Result: " & $sResult & @CRLF) ; and show it in console Func _SignedInteger($iUnsignedInteger) Local $iSignedInteger If $iUnsignedInteger > (2^31) Then ; then it means a negative integer $iSignedInteger = $iUnsignedInteger - (2^32) Else $iSignedInteger = $iUnsignedInteger EndIf Return $iSignedInteger EndFunc It took me some time to find out the problem and so I hope I can help somebody with this.

      Good morning guys
      I'd like to know if there is a way to convert a PDF in CSV or, eventually, in TXT, in order to read from it, like a database...
      I have a PDF and I think ( I dind't search a lot on the forum ) with AutoIt, but I'd like work with Excel styles...
      Does anyone know a good program which convert PDF to CSV? 
      PS: the PDF file is 5 MB, and it contains 439 pages...
      Thanks everyone for the help

      Hi All,
      Trying to convert a number to binary zeros and ones but I'm getting a result I don't understand and looks more like hex than binary.
      Here's my basic code:
      $myNum = 11 $myNumBin = Binary($myNum) MsgBox(0, "Binary result", $myNumBin) What I want is "1011", what I get is 0x0B000000.
      Thanks!
