regread not as I expect using HKLM64 on 32 bit OS

Recommended Posts

martin

I expected that RegEnum("HKLM64",1) would fail on a 32 bit OS so that it could indicate that the OS is 32 bit, but it doesn't fail.

$key = RegEnumKey ( "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE64\HARDWARE", 1 )
$IsOS64 = @error = 0
MsgBox(0,$key,$isos64);reports the key and says true, but HKLM64 doesn't exist.

Also, RegRead returns the registry values as thought the 64 was omitted. EG

$var = RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE64\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion", "ProgramFilesDir")
MsgBox(4096, "Program files are in:", $var);gives answer as though HKLM was used, HKLM64 doesn't exist

Is this the fault of Windows, a bug in AutoIt or is it intentional?

I have asked the devs for a definitive answer to this in Dev Chat. Now we can sit back and wait for someone to take a look at it.

I know how you got there. I do become a problem some days.
