RegWrite on 32-bit and 64-bit Windows


Recommended Posts

Hi, is this the right way to use RegWrite func on 32-bit and 64-bit Windows

RegWrite($HKEY_CURRENT_USER & '\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run', 'Obd2Diag', 'REG_SZ', 'app')

Thanks in advance

The Run subkey in HKEY_CURRENT_USER seems to be a shared key. So you can just use HKEY_CURRENT_USER for both architectures.

See this MSDN article about Registry Keys and WOW64 : https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa384253%28v=vs.85%29.aspx

Thanks a lot, i really appreciate your help, ... i just ask because Autoit Help file says 


For registry interaction, use HKCR64 or HKLM64 to bypass the redirection mechanism see Registry Functions documentation.



When running on 64-bit Windows if you want to write a key or value specific to the 64-bit environment you have to suffix the HK... with 64 i.e. HKLM64.


As you said no need to change anything here  :thumbsup:
