Read Registry key "Value Name" Column

Recommended Posts

Can someone please tell me how to read registry key's "Value Name" column?

I can't use Regread as it will display the Value data of the "Value Name".

I tried with RegEnumKey and RegEnumVal too but it doesn't work.

 

I just want to check if the word "JavaHome" exists

$val = RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Plug-in\11.101.2", "JavaHome")
MsgBox(0, "", $val)

Check if @error is set or not

$val = RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Plug-in\11.101.2", "JavaHome")
If Not @error Then MsgBox(0, "", "JavaHome value exists")

I have set the @error.

If I use it as:

$val = RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Plug-in\11.101.2", "JavaHome")
If Not @error Then MsgBox(0, "", "JavaHome value exists")

I will get the msgbox as: JavaHome value exists.

If instead of above, I use it as:

$val = RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Plug-in\11.101.2", "JavaHome")
MsgBox(0, "", $val)

it will display the ValueData column results.

 

But I want to display what is written in the the ValueName column.

So, looking at the the snapshot I have attached here, I want to read the ValueName column result showing as: "JavaHome".

Use RegEnumVal to loop through the Values and find the one you want:

Local $sKey, $sSubKey
    $sKey = "HKLM\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Plug-in\11.25.2"

    For $i = 1 To 50
        $sSubKey = RegEnumVal($sKey, $i)
        If @error Then
            ExitLoop
        Else
            ConsoleWrite($sSubKey & @CRLF)
        EndIf
    Next
