.REG support

Recommended Posts

As you can see:

_RegCopyKey( "Backup\MyKey.reg", "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Mykey")

This code would copy a key from a .reg file to registry.

 

But AutoIt have not .reg direct support.

I have looked for in internet, but I haven't found good code...

 

Is there a solution for import/export registry?

@Grof

AutoIt doesn't have a large set of functions to deal with Registry, but as you'll see, it has a lot of UDFs and, doing a little research on the Internet, could only help you answering your questions.

Regedit.exe has some command line switches which you can use to do a lot of things.

Take a look at them and come back with a runnable script :)

Simply run the RegEdit program to import/export a given key from/to a file, instead of reinventing that wheel. :)

As you remember, (do you remember?) I have written in one of my first posts, where I asked to implement more instructions in registry management, I'll prefer avoid use of external applications or Windows API...

 

This is a script I have found on the net:

RunWait("regedit.exe /s Portable.reg", @ScriptDir)
RunWait("App\flashget.exe")
RunWait('regedit.exe /s /e "' & @ScriptDir & '\Portable.reg" "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JetCar"')
RunWait("regedit.exe /s Portable2.reg", @ScriptDir)

 

I don't understand why the developers of AutoIt prefer not use their tool as a portabilizer...

NSIS with PortableApps has reach a lot of users.  :no:

As you remember ( do you remember?) : I told you we WILL NOT add more functionality to Autoit3 and you need to work with the current set of functions.
If you are really interested in learning you would be open to suggestion, but as you clearly have your mind made up to be stubborn, I leave you to your stubbornness and not bother you anymore with my insights. ....   have fun.

If you would have looked at the link provided, you could see that no "external applications" or Windows API were used...

Just command line switches of the built-in regedit.exe.

I remember... But I'm trying to change your mind!

I know you are a boss in developers team. :D

 

 

Francesco, I know the syntax of regedit, but if it's possible, i prefer avoid use of it.

 

Thanks.

Well, so, you don't want to use external applications, nor Windows API, nor built-in regedit.exe which provides you everything you need.

Real-World answer:

How are you going to do it if you don't want to use almost everything needed to do that?

It's like that you want write a letter, but you don't want to use a pen nor a paper. How are you going to do that?

Sarcastic answer:

Did you look at machine language? Maybe that it's what you are looking for.

I was just thinking about it...

 

I want tell you (Jos) a story:

 

Once upon a time (1985-1990) there were about five software house building professional (it's a grat word) image retoucher (MicrographX, Aldus, Adobe ecc).

They were simple and not evolved.

One of these (and only one) developed CMYK support (the paper print inks) and plug-ins support.

After few years all the other software, except Adobe Photoshop, stopped development.

 

There were many plugins, for every situation and ideas.

With the new releases, Photoshop added new features, the same of plugins, so the plugins developers have to think something new.

And so on.

 

Now I'm sure you know, photoshop is a standard plugin format and this app is the only leader in the image market.

I know there are other software (using already Adobe standard), but are they bush in the wood...

I see multiple possible routes to solve any issue:

  1. Use functions/UDFs provided by AutoIt
  2. Use UDFs provided by the Autoit community
  3. Use APIs provided by Windows
  4. Use tools provided by Windows
  5. Use tools provided by anyone else

Before you select one of this routes, define your goal. If it is portability (means: run your script on any Windows computer) then routes 1 to 4 are nearly equal. Only difference is the needed effort to implement them in AutoIt.

So what is your goal?

You were doing the first two but that isn’t good enough for you. You love to complain. It’s very apparent. If it’s such a big problem why don’t you go do it in some other language?

I am not and actually hardly have done any AutOit3 core develeopment....  but you would have know that when having read the Autoit3 history page in the helpfile. ;)

Your analogy is totally lost and actually somewhat silly. AutoIt3 is a generic tools for automating processes, not a tool for niche purpose like you are after.
You are expected to use it's basic set of tools to create your own function. As you don't want to understand this, nor invest time in learning it yourself, I can only conclude you are at the wrong place here and need to go for some all-inclusive solution that does it for you. 

As said: I which you success with your efforts either here or somewhere else.

Because I would (as I said) create a tutorial about using AutoIt as a portabilizer, and all the other portabilizer are simple in coding.

If you try YAP, you are able to program it without coding... It's so simple!!!

 

This is the reason I'm trying to convince someone to write a UDF for import /export .Reg files.

This could be not so difficult, but I'm not able. :(

 

If you search in Internet there are many request about this argument, but the only solution You will find is to use reg.exe o regedit.

 

Earthshine, do you want write email for me? :D

Exit, are you available???

You already have a UDF written by a community member that works so what is your beef? Also you can write your own that exports and imports registry using regedit which is available on every Windows system so it doesn’t get any more portable than that. 

It seems like a petulant childish rant That is done in order to get others to work for you but that’s not how it works on this forum

Quite possibly one of the most ignorant statements I have seen in all my time on this forum. What do you think AutoIt was designed to interact with?! :idiot:

I still don't understand this. You keep going on about how you're going to write this tutorial or that, but have shown yourself incapable of even the simplest things with the language. If you cannot do the basics, how do you expect to write a tutorial that is going to be worth anything to anyone else?
