Registry Keys

3 posts in this topic

Are they any dangers in creating and editing my own registry keys?

I want to use a registry key to save a password but i know that it is not the smartest thing to be messing around with the registry and wanted to make sure there is very little chance of messing something up if i create the keys myself.

If it is relatively safe where exactly would i create them?

Like, HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, HKEY_CURRENT_USER, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, ect.

Thanks

don't screw up.

if you're scared, make sure you know how to recover/ have your system fully backed up. Otherwise, don't screw up and you'll be fine.

In fact, it is very safe, as an AutoIt user we already have some sort of common sense what's safe or not.

Just export the whole Reg setting and save to a .reg file, afterward write in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Your own program name\Setting\Password

Use _StringEncrypt to ensure the encryption, if not search around the example forum, there are loads of good encryption method.
