This piece of code creates and reads OK a key at "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" and can be changed for a key at "HKEY_CURRENT_USER"
$sta= RegWrite("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Command Processor", "wav", "REG_SZ", "5555") MsgBox(4096,"wrote", $sta &@cr& @error) $zz= RegRead ("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Command Processor", "wav") MsgBox(4096,"readed","="&$zz &@cr& @error) Exit With HKEY_CURRENT_USER, in RegEdit we can see the created key, and we can create the key by hand/RegEdit and everything Works OK.
At HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE we can´t see the created key above thru RegEdit, but it Works (even not seeing, I can read). But if I create "by hand"/RegEdit the key, it can´t read it with $zz= RegRead ("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.... above.
I´m the PC´s WIN.7 administrator. Even so I ran RegEdit as administrator and also the compiled AU3 and also plain. No changes.
edit: even if Try "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\AAA", "wav", the same holds true.
$sta= RegWrite("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\AAA", "wav", "REG_SZ", "4444") MsgBox(4096,"wrote", $sta &@cr& @error) $zz= RegRead ("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\AAA", "wav") MsgBox(4096,"readed","="&$zz &@cr& @error) Exit Seems that it creates this key at another place.... I can read the above value ("4444"), even after a boot, even the key not showing in regedit. And if I create it by hand key AAA/wav with a distinct value (666), t, it continues Reading the old value = 444.
TeraCopy Timer - A program of mine, front end really, that I have been working on (on & off) for some time, but not shared here before, that I recall. Third party program TeraCopy is required.
Many of you will be familiar with TeraCopy, and it has been discussed here at AF on several occasions, in various sub forums, including Chat.
BE ADVISED - I still use an older version of TeraCopy (v2.27), a goody but an oldy, so have only tested my program with that. It may work with the newer v3.xx, or may be easily adjusted to do so, but I have not yet gone that route. Likewise, I only use it with Win 7 and Win XP, but I don't imagine there should be any issues with newer Windows. Add to that, my program being devised and created in AutoIt v220.127.116.11.
So what is TeraCopy Timer and why might you need it?
Those familiar with TeraCopy use, know you can run multiple copy or move jobs either simultaneously or concurrently (one immediately after another has finished). With the free version at least, you have no control over precise order or timing, and no way to deal (without manual interaction) with the pesky Thumbs.db files in Win XP. TeraCopy Timer allows you to do all those things, and in a batch fashion.
Some screenshots and brief explanation
This new WAIT feature is the simplest and best way to use the program generally (in my view) ... but check out the following, as it is not always the case.
Advanced Delay Window
WARNING - It should go without saying, that you take all the usual precautions. For instance, don't use move with the only copy you have of precious files. BACKUP BACKUP BACKUP! Don't hold me liable for anything, except for being a nice guy who likes to share.

P.S. I am not affiliated in any way with those who created and provide the excellent third party program - TeraCopy.
This is pretty useful to me at least, I hope to others. Whenever you need to poke a button or such on a GUI, you can just make calls to this UDF and instruct it how long to wait, 0 is forever, anyway, let the code to the explaining. Feel free to help expand this UDF. I plan to create new ones as I go along that support all the Win32 and .NET Controls. Ultimately, I would like to be able to fully control any type of control, this works well with most. Just an example of what you can do.
The test installs and can uninstall 7-Zip 15.14 (x64) Setup.exe

good morning everybody.
today i liked to share an small example with you
which it an function to read the registry values as an array
the result array is 2d array witch
$a_array[n] = value name
$a_array[n] = value Data
$a_array = values count
here's the function
#include <Array.au3> #include <WinAPIReg.au3> #include <APIRegConstants.au3> Local $a_array = _RegReadToArray("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run") If @error Then MsgBox(16, "error", @error) Exit EndIf _ArrayDisplay($a_array) Func _RegReadToArray($s_RegKey) Local $a_KeySplitInfo = StringSplit($s_RegKey, "\\", 2) If UBound($a_KeySplitInfo) <= 1 Then $a_KeySplitInfo = StringSplit($s_RegKey, "\", 2) If UBound($a_KeySplitInfo) <= 1 Then Return (1, 1, 0) EndIf Local $H_KeyInfo = "", $s_RegKeyInfo = "" Switch $a_KeySplitInfo Case "hklm", "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE", "hklm64", "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE64" $H_KeyInfo = $HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE Case "hkCu", "HKEY_CURRENT_USER", "hkCU64", "HKEY_CURRENT_USER64" $H_KeyInfo = $HKEY_CURRENT_USER Case "hkCr", "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT", "HKCR64", "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT64" $H_KeyInfo = $HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT Case "HKU", "HKEY_USERS", "HKU64", "HKEY_USERS64" $H_KeyInfo = $HKEY_USERS Case Else Return SetError(2, 2, 0) EndSwitch _ArrayDelete($a_KeySplitInfo, 0) $s_RegKeyInfo = _ArrayToString($a_KeySplitInfo, "\") Local $H_KeyInfoOpen = _WinAPI_RegOpenKey($H_KeyInfo, $s_RegKeyInfo, $KEY_READ) Local $A_KeyInfo = _WinAPI_RegQueryInfoKey($H_KeyInfoOpen) If @error Then Return SetError(1, 1, 0) _WinAPI_RegCloseKey($H_KeyInfoOpen) Local $A_RegVal[$A_KeyInfo + 1] Local $iV = 1, $s_RegRead = "" While 1 $s_RegVal = RegEnumVal($s_RegKey, $iV) If @error <> 0 Then ExitLoop $s_RegRead = RegRead($s_RegKey, $s_RegVal) If Not (@error) Then $A_RegVal[$iV] = $s_RegVal $A_RegVal[$iV] = $s_RegRead EndIf $iV += 1 WEnd $A_RegVal = UBound($A_RegVal) - 1 If $A_RegVal >= 1 Then Return $A_RegVal Else Return SetError(3, 3, 0) EndIf EndFunc ;==>_RegReadToArray
i hope you benefit from it
with my greetings
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.
