How can I create with RegWrite a REG_QWORD?

As far as I know AutoIt's RegWrite() function doesn't support REG_QWORD.

As workaround you can call apropriate registry API functions directly with DllCall().

For inspiration look into AutoIt sources: autoit-v3.1.0-src.exe --> script_registry.cpp --> RegWrite

There are used these API functions: RegCreateKeyEx, RegSetValueEx, RegCloseKey

See MSDN for details or search for examples with these API functions

or maybe make post in Feature request forum for adding REG_QWORD support

Looks like REG_QWORD was implemented in the recently released Beta.



Hmm... I'm missing something...

$iQWord = Binary("0xFEDCBA9876543210")
ConsoleWrite("Debug: $iQWord = " & $iQWord & @LF)
$RET = RegWrite("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\AutoIt v3\Temp", "Test_QWord", "REG_QWORD", $iQWord)
ConsoleWrite("Debug: $RET = " & $RET & @LF)
$RET = RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\AutoIt v3\Temp", "Test_QWord")
ConsoleWrite("Debug: $RET = " & $RET & @LF)

The error is only because SciTE doesn't recognize the new key word.

The Value Test_QWord is written to my registry as "FE 00 00 00 00 00 00 00", and appears to RegRead as an empty string.
