Unexpected Results Using Regenumkey.

I took the documentation script example for RegEnumKey. I modified the registry key I want to process:

$var = RegEnumKey("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall", 1)
MsgBox(4096, "First SubKey: ", $var)
$var = RegEnumKey("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall", 2)
MsgBox(4096, "Second SubKey: ", $var)

Take a look at the screenshot of the items in the Uninstall key in my XP registry. The product code GUIDs are not read and the first displayed item is that which follows them. Does anyone know why I'm not reading the registry items in the order they are displayed in the screenshot?

Edit: I need to read the GUID registry keys.

The treeview sorting that Regedit or Regedt32 does not prescribe, necessarily, to the same sorting rules that the registry API does.

Larry, thanks. I should have checked the ascii collating sequence as { and } appear after the alpha characters so all I had to do was trawl further on and I would have found them. Doh! :">
