Interacting with the registry

3 posts in this topic

Hello all,

I'm new to AutoIt, and this is my first project with it so bear with me. My goal is to help automate a process we use to repair a known problem with a software application. This involves accessing regedt32.

i need to be able to highlight HKEY_USERS, then click File, then click Load Hive.

But the AutoIt window identifier only "sees" the registry window as one big SysTreeView32 object, with no discernible separate objects for clicking on. Now, I could use a click coordinate, but with different users using different resolutions, and keys may be expanded on some users machines and not on others.. would really throw things off, so I don't think that will work.

Can anyone tell me, show me, or point me to a reference that would help me figure this out? Thanks all

If you need to update a specific set of keys, it is probably better to update those entries using the RegWrite function of AutoIT. Consult the AutoIT Helpfile on how to use RegWrite

Hope this helps

Thanks for your input.

Actually, i dont need to interact with a specific key, i need to interact with the HKEY_USERS folder itself. After which I need to click on the File Menu button, and make various selections from there. But again, the SysTreeView32 issue persists
