REGEDIT - SEND("{ENTER}") Expression

Recommended Posts

Hey Girls & Guys

I tried to create an scipt part (like the fist part) that includes RegWrite commands and Send Commands to write a registry key (just one).

After part 1 would come part 2/3/4/5 (all just install-parts with RUN that i already wrote)

Can someone help me, what is wrong in my Part1 script?

Here the script:

; Folder: 01. Enable\Optimierung.reg    -    Registry key add part

#RequireAdmin        ; Admin priviledge
$regFile = @TempDir & '\01. Enable\Optimierung.reg'
RunWait("Regedit " & $regFile)

; Key check
RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System", "EnableLinkedConnections")
; Key write
RegWrite("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System", "EnableLinkedConnections", "REG_DWORD", "00000001")


If WinActive("Registrierungs-Editor", "") Then

I think your problem comes from the RunWait, although you did not say what is your problem.

RunWait will wait until the program you are running (in your case regedit) is completed before continuing the script.  What you really want is to use Run or ShellExecute (in your case I would use ShellExecute).

Something like this should work :

#include <Constants.au3>

$regFile = "Test.reg " ; @TempDir & '\01. Enable\Optimierung.reg'
ShellExecute ($regFile)
Local $hWnd = WinWait ("[CLASS:#32770]")
ControlSend ($hWnd, "", "", "{ENTER}")
Sleep (300)
$hWnd = WinWait ("[CLASS:#32770]")
ControlSend ($hWnd, "", "", "{ENTER}")

; Key check
Local $sReg = RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System", "EnableLinkedConnections")
MsgBox ($MB_SYSTEMMODAL,"",$sReg)
; Key write
RegWrite("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System", "EnableLinkedConnections", "REG_DWORD", 1)
If @error Then MsgBox ($MB_SYSTEMMODAL,"Error",@error)

Only thing left for you is to add more error handling.  I only add one at the end.

I do not fully understand why you are mixing the execution of .reg file with RegWrite function.  My advice is to use only RegWrite and drop the .reg files.

And when you post code, please use this tool.
