Writing a custom uninstaller

Recommended Posts

I am trying to enumerate a HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\ and everything below this key, and the look for the uninstall strings of each app..

Problem with RegRead ( "keyname", "valuename" ), is that it needs a valuename, and since I am only looking for ALL Keyname's below the \Uninstall, I am not sure how to go about this?

Is this possible to do?

Thanks in advance..

You'll want to take a look at RegEnumKey():

Local $I = 1
Local $Programs = ''

Local Const $REG_PATH = 'HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall'

While True
    Local $KeyName = RegEnumKey($REG_PATH, $I)
    If @Error Then ExitLoop
    Local $Name = RegRead($REG_PATH & '\' & $KeyName, 'DisplayName')
    If $Name <> '' Then $Programs &= $Name & @CRLF
    $I += 1

MsgBox(0x40, 'Uninstallable Software', $Programs)
