So I am trying to write a script that can take the current computer name and write it to a registry key.

This key uses REG_BINARY type of key and looks like this:

Value 1
  Name:            LocalName
  Type:            REG_BINARY
  Data:            
00000000   54 4f 55 47 48 42 4f 4f - 4b 36 30 39 38 00 00 00  TOUGHBOOK6098...
00000010   00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 - 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00  ................
00000020   00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 - 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00  ................
00000030   00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 - 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00  ................
00000040   00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 - 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00  ................
00000050   00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 - 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00  ................
00000060   00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 - 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00  ................
00000070   00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 - 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00  ................
00000080   00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 - 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00  ................
00000090   00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 - 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00  ................
000000a0   00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 - 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00  ................
000000b0   00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 - 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00  ................
000000c0   00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 - 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00  ................
000000d0   00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 - 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00  ................
000000e0   00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 - 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00  ................
000000f0   00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 -                          ........

Its apparently very important that all the ending 00's are in there I found this out as I was working on some other keys that had to do with security settings, and if the key was say 01 00 00 putting any less or any extra ending zeros would cause the change in the regsitry to not effect the software.

So what I am attempting to do is use the @ComputerName macro and plug it into a StringtoBinary() function and then write it to the registry.

The challenge I face is how to fill in the entire binary value for the registry key and not just the converted strings value.

I wonder if there is some easy code to do that.  I imagine there must be a few ways but I am looking for the most straight forward/easiest. 

Also on a side note, instead of using RegWrite is there a way to create a .REG file that I can call from CMD with Reg Import?

This is being done at an enterprise level and the users do not have access to write to the registry, but they can import a reg file via .bat or in my case a Autoit .exe with @ComSpec

Currently I am importing all the "static" keys I need for configuration, but computer name is dynamic so that is why I am trying to find a way to use the @ComputerName macro to insert that value.

Regards,

Another method: 

ConsoleWrite(StringToBinaryFixed(@ComputerName, 16) & @CRLF)

Func StringToBinaryFixed($sString, $iLength)
    Local $tChar = DllStructCreate("CHAR[" & $iLength & "]")
    Local $tByte = DllStructCreate("BYTE[" & $iLength & "]", DllStructGetPtr($tChar))

    DllStructSetData($tChar, 1, $sString)

    Return DllStructGetData($tByte, 1)
EndFunc

Managed to come up with my own solution, very crude but very simple :)

I am sure it can be tightened up to be cleaner and still use this same technique

This wont help me get past the fact normal users do not have admin access to the registry so I will have to see if there is a way to make a .REG file out of my result and also still further yet need a simple check to see if the machine in 32bit or 64bit since they use different HKLM directories for software.

Looking forward to see what you guys can add.

Not sure this is what you're after but...

#include <FileConstants.au3>

Global $g_dData = StringToBinaryFixed(@ComputerName, 247)

$g_dData = StringTrimLeft($g_dData, 2)
$g_dData = StringRegExpReplace($g_dData, "[0-9A-F]{2}", "\0,")
$g_dData = StringTrimRight($g_dData, 1)
$g_dData = StringLower($g_dData)

Global $g_sHive

If (@OSArch == "X86") Then
    $g_sHive = "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Toshiba"
Else
    $g_sHive = "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Toshiba"
EndIf

Global $g_sValue = "Test"

Global $g_sFileText = StringFormat('Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00\n\n[%s]\n"%s"=hex:%s', $g_sHive, $g_sValue, $g_dData)

Global $g_hFile = FileOpen(@DesktopDir & "\RegKey.reg", $FO_OVERWRITE + $FO_CREATEPATH) ;~ Create .reg file on desktop.
FileWrite($g_hFile, $g_sFileText)
FileClose($g_hFile)

Func StringToBinaryFixed($sString, $iLength)
    Local $tChar = DllStructCreate("CHAR[" & $iLength & "]")
    Local $tByte = DllStructCreate("BYTE[" & $iLength & "]", DllStructGetPtr($tChar))

    DllStructSetData($tChar, 1, $sString)

    Return DllStructGetData($tByte, 1)
EndFunc

      HI,
      for couple of years I'm using  Jos script for sending reports, email with excel attachment. But from last week i'm getting this error when sending excel or word attachment
      message has lines too long for transport jpeg, pdf works with no problems, any sugestion ?

      I'm using the following:
      Autoit 3.3.14.5
      newly installed Beta 3.3.15.5
      SQlite version 3380000 aka 3.38.0
      I put sqlite3.dll and sqlite3_x64.dll in C:\Windows\System32 since many scripts depend on them.


      I extended the output of _SQLite_Startup()
      with:
      ConsoleWrite("@AutoItX64 " & @AutoItX64 & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite("$sDll_Filename " & $sDll_Filename & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite("_SQLite_LibVersion=" & _SQLite_LibVersion() & @CRLF)

      Also using the script from https://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/libfunctions/_SQLite_Startup.htm for testing.

       
      >Running:(3.3.14.5):C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\autoit3.exe "R:\Download\aasdf.au3" @AutoItX64 0 $sDll_Filename sqlite3.dll _SQLite_LibVersion=0 >Running:(3.3.14.5):C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\autoit3_x64.exe "R:\Download\aasdf.au3" @AutoItX64 1 $sDll_Filename sqlite3_x64.dll _SQLite_LibVersion=3.38.0 >Running:(3.3.15.5):C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Beta\autoit3.exe "R:\Download\aasdf.au3" @AutoItX64 0 $sDll_Filename sqlite3.dll _SQLite_LibVersion=0 >Running:(3.3.15.5):C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\Beta\autoit3_x64.exe "R:\Download\aasdf.au3" @AutoItX64 1 $sDll_Filename sqlite3_x64.dll _SQLite_LibVersion=3.38.0


      Why doesn't it work in 32bit, despite me having the 32bit sqlite.dll? Autoit urges running scripts in 32bit mode and Scite starts scripts just in 32bit mode without the flag?
      With #AutoIt3Wrapper_UseX64=Y it just works, both normal Autoit and beta!

      Hello Team, Greetings!
      Is there any way to run any 3rd party application silently in background without the GUI getting in the front ?
      I was implementing angry-ip scanner with autoit & wanted the angry-ip application to run in background quietly as I am copying its output to other file on completion. is there any way to achieve my query?
      Below is code I tried: 
      $range = "192.168.0.1 192.168.0.255" ShellExecuteWait("C:\Windows\DDM\ipscan.exe","-f:range "&$iprange&" -q -o C:\temp\ScanResults.csv","","open",@SW_HIDE) Thanks!

      This topic give you access to an AutoIt functions library I maintain which is called PAL, Peter's AutoIt Library. The latest version 1.26 contains 214 functions divided into these topics:
      window, desktop and monitor GUI, mouse and color GUI controls including graphical buttons (jpg, png) logics and mathematics include constants string, xml string and file string dialogues and progress bars data lists: lists, stacks, shift registers and key maps (a.ka. dictionaries) miscellaneous: logging/debugging, process and system info Change log and files section  on the PAL website (SourceForge).
      A lot of these functions were created in the development of Peace, Peter's Equalizer APO Configuration Extension, which is a user interface for the system-wide audio driver called Equalizer APO.

      Hi, I am struggling in setting the value of a textarea based on the value of clipboard (that contains a long web page source codes). If I use _WD_SetElementValue, it freezes after some time, or appears to be pressing tab and goes out of focus. I can also use send keys but i need the script to run in the background.
      Here is the full script:
      #Include "Chrome.au3" #Include "wd_core.au3" #Include "wd_helper.au3" #Include "WinHttp.au3" #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <WinAPIFiles.au3> #include <Array.au3> #include <AutoItConstants.au3> #include <WinAPIFiles.au3> #include <GDIPlus.au3> #include <Excel.au3> Local $sDesiredCapabilities, $sSession SetupChrome() _WD_Startup() $sSession = _WD_CreateSession($sDesiredCapabilities) _WD_LoadWait($sSession) _WD_Navigate($sSession, "http://demo.borland.com/testsite/stadyn_largepagewithimages.html") _WD_LoadWait($sSession) Global $sSource = _WD_GetSource($sSession) Local $Paste = ClipPut($sSource) Local $sData = ClipGet() Local $aArray = 0, _ $iOffset = 1 While 1 $aArray = StringRegExp($sData, '(?s)<p>.*</p>', $STR_REGEXPARRAYMATCH, $iOffset) If @error Then ExitLoop $iOffset = @extended For $i = 0 To UBound($aArray) - 1 Local $Paste = ClipPut($aArray[$i]) Local $sRegExData = ClipGet() ;MsgBox(0, "", "$sRegExData = " & $sRegExData) Next WEnd _WD_Navigate($sSession, "https://www.w3schools.com/tags/tryit.asp?filename=tryhtml5_textarea_placeholder") _WD_WaitElement($sSession, $_WD_LOCATOR_ByCSSSelector, "iframe#iframeResult") Local $sElement1 = _WD_FindElement($sSession, $_WD_LOCATOR_ByCSSSelector, "iframe#iframeResult") _WD_FrameEnter($sSession, $sElement1) _WD_WaitElement($sSession, $_WD_LOCATOR_ByXPath, "//html/body/textarea") $textarea = _WD_FindElement($sSession, $_WD_LOCATOR_ByXPath, "//html/body/textarea") _WD_ElementAction($sSession, $textarea, 'click') ;WD SetElementValue(SsSession, Stextarea, $sRegExData) <-- I can do this but the focus goes out, or the browser freezes _WD_FrameLeave($sSession) sleep(2000) Send("^v") _WD_LoadWait($sSession) _WD_Shutdown() Func SetupChrome() _WD_Option('Driver', 'chromedriver.exe') _WD_Option('Port', 9515) _WD_Option('DriverParams', '--log-path="' & @ScriptDir & '\chrome.log"') $sDesiredCapabilities = '{"capabilities": {"alwaysMatch": {"goog:chromeOptions": {"w3c": true, "args":["start-maximized","disable-infobars"]}}}}' EndFunc ;==>SetupChrome Can someone help me please, or re-direct me to the right path? TIA!
