BinaryToString

10 posts in this topic

Hi,

I am trying to get a list of all websites in a users compatibility view list but they are all in binary and I'm trying to convert them into strings.

It will show me the binary but not the string.

This is what I have so far.

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <StringConstants.au3>
Local $Binary = RegRead("HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\BrowserEmulation\ClearableListData", "UserFilter")
MsgBox(0, "Binary Data", $Binary)
For $i = 0 To UBound($Binary) -1
    Local $String = BinaryToString($Binary, "")
Next
MsgBox(0, "String", $String)

I don't think RegRead returns an array, does it?  If not, you should see an error on the MsgBox because $String would not be set to a value.

This might work for you, at least it converts it to a semi-usable string.

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
Local $Binary = RegRead("HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\BrowserEmulation\ClearableListData", "UserFilter")
$Binary = StringReplace(String($Binary), "00", ASC("."))
MsgBox(0, "Binary Data", $Binary)
Local $String = BinaryToString($Binary)
MsgBox(0, "String", $String)

The problem with the BinaryToString function is that it stops as soon as it hits a NULL, which is why only part of your string would show in the second msgbox.

Can this be done with AutoIT?

I think there is a function for this in Powershell.

Actually that did work, if you look at the end of the string in the MsgBox you will see the msn.com in between all the "F"s in it.

Can we make the output string more ledgible?

You can do this...

 

#include <Array.au3>

Local $aUrls = _GetUsersCompatibilityViewList()

_ArrayDisplay($aUrls)

Func _GetUsersCompatibilityViewList()
    Local Const $sTag_UserFilter = "byte Dummy[8];dword NumberOfEntries;"
    Local Const $sTag_Entry = "byte Dummy[16];word Length;"
    Local $aList[0]
    Local $sBinary = RegRead("HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\BrowserEmulation\ClearableListData", "UserFilter")
    If @error Then Return
    Local $tData = DllStructCreate("byte Data[" & BinaryLen($sBinary) & "]")
    $tData.Data = $sBinary


    Local $tInInfo = DllStructCreate($sTag_UserFilter, DllStructGetPtr($tData))
    Local $nEntries = $tInInfo.NumberOfEntries
    ReDim $aList[$nEntries]



    Local $tEntryInfo = 0
    Local $NextIndex = 24
    Local $iLength = 0
    Local $tUrl = 0

    For $i = 1 To $nEntries
        $tEntryInfo = DllStructCreate($sTag_Entry, DllStructGetPtr($tData) + $NextIndex)
        $iLength = DllStructGetData($tEntryInfo, 2)
        $tUrl = DllStructCreate("wchar String[" & $iLength & "]", DllStructGetPtr($tEntryInfo) + 18)
        $aList[$i - 1] = $tUrl.String
        $NextIndex += ($iLength * 2) + 18
    Next
    Return $aList
EndFunc   ;==>_GetUsersCompatibilityViewList

Saludos
