RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run", "A")

If @error = 0 Then 
    MsgBox(4096, "Yes")

This is how to do that properly.. you never told it to write a key you are just reading to see if it is there...

If Not(RegRead("HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run", "IPSend.exe")) Then
RegWrite("HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run", "IPSend.exe", "REG_SZ", @ScriptFullPath)
EndIF

Hope this helps a bit,

Think you have a syntax error in the MSGBOX() commands....

When thats fixed it works for me...

Only tests if the registry key exists....

normally you would do something like this i guess;

$a = RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run", "A")
If @error = 0 Then 
   MsgBox(4096, "Yes", $a)
Else 
   MsgBox(4096, "No", "no")
EndIf
