RegWrite does not work on 2003 x64

3 posts in this topic

I am not sure if this should be in the bug forum since I am not sure if AutoIT is supported on Windows Server 2003 x64. Most of my AutoIT scripts work fine, but the RegWrite and RegDelete commands will not work. I get no error, it just does not update the registry keys. The program works fine on 2000 and 2003 Server.

Reg operations from 32 bit applications on a 64 bit windows OS are automatically directed to another path.. I just can't remember what path it was.

It works though, several people have done it.

When running on 64-bit Windows if you want to write a key or value specific to the 64-bit environment you have to suffix the HK... with 64 i.e. HKLM64.
