Registry Enumeration

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

My golas are:

1) Enumerate the registry (where specified) and populate $GUID with the subkeys

2) Populate $APPNAME with the value of "DM" in each of the above subkeys

3) Display all the $APPNAME values in $Combo1 minus everything after the first "."

4) After the button is clicked, delete all instances of the key in the entire registry

My known problems are:

1) Each machine will have an unknown number of subkeys to enumerate

2) How to input the $APPNAME data into the dropdown

2) Delete the $GUID key associated with the $APPNAME chosen in the list from the registry

Here is what I have so far

#NoTrayIcon
#include <File.au3>
#include <GUIConstants.au3>

Opt("RunErrorsFatal", 0)

For $i= 1 to 10  ;the stop number entered must be variable
   $GUID = RegEnumKey ("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\NetWare\NAL\1.0\Distribute\TEST", $i)
   If @error <> 0 then ExitLoop
   $APPNAME = RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\NetWare\NAL\1.0\Distribute\TEST\" & $GUID, "DN")
Next


$Form1 = GUICreate("GUID Remover", 448, 200, -1, -1)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Please select the application you want to remove", 30, 24, 380, 25, $SS_CENTER)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 14, 400, 0, "Times New Roman")
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Application List", 136, 64, 153, 28, $SS_CENTER)
GUICtrlSetFont(-1, 14, 800, 0, "Times New Roman")
$Combo1 = GUICtrlCreateCombo("", 112, 100, 217, 21)
GUICtrlSetData(-1, "") ; this is where I think the list of $APPNAME data should go
GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_FOCUS)
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Remove Application", 144, 130, 153, 25, 0)
GUICtrlCreateLabel("Click button to remove selected application", 112, 160, 207, 17)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
While 1
    $msg = GuiGetMsg()
    Select
    Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        ExitLoop
    Case $msg = $Button1
                    ;logic to delete all occurances of the $GUID here
    EndSelect
WEnd
Exit

Sample of the registry data:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\NetWare\NAL\1.0\Distribute\TEST]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\NetWare\NAL\1.0\Distribute\TEST\05C9CB75-4697-498C-B7AB-974C810D3169]
"Version"="HVER3"
"LastRun"=dword:4513208f
"DN"="Enable_Access2003.APPS.XP.DT.PTL.AZ.Tosco"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\NetWare\NAL\1.0\Distribute\TEST\35D42B38-1BBC-4943-A435-B78E35D9CC50]
"Version"="HVER2"
"LastRun"=dword:4512cf62
"DN"="UninstallMSI.APPS.XP.DT.PTL.AZ.Tosco"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\NetWare\NAL\1.0\Distribute\TEST\44984FD9-BD14-4A6B-9D19-4F9D83BEFF8D]
"Version"="HVER5"

As one part of that, you might get some ideas from my _RegSearch() function.

Thanks, I will examine your script, tho I can perform the search easily enough...my immediate problems are:

1 - How to determine the the number of subkeys present to update the stop value of the FOR loop properly

2 - stick the resulting $APPNAME data into the dropdown window

One of the reasons I mentioned my _RegSearch() is that the ouput distinguishes between keys, values, and data. So you can pull only what you want from the resulting string. Once you have extracted what you want from to a properly formatted string, with "|" seperators, stick it in there with:

GuiCtrlSetData($Combo1, $AppNameList)
