StringReplace to find/repl in Text File


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I am looking to replace a Server Name in the registry on a large number of XP machines. o:)

I must change ServerName1 to ServerName9

I was thinking of exporting the known registry keys and wondering if I can StringReplace within a text file....

Any ideas/suggestions. :lmao:

Thanks very much

looks like you know the registry key...

If you need to check the current name first you can do a RegRead() .

and update the registry with RegWrite()

Hmmm,

I need to target specfici areas of Reg Keys as well as values.....

below is exact extract with server name changed to generic...

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Printers]

"DeviceOld"="\\\\servername1\\printername,winspool,Ne06:"

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Printers\Connections]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Printers\Connections\,,servername1,printername]

"Server"="\\\\servername1"

"Provider"="win32spl.dll"

And dozens more like this. I am trying to switch printserver names by pulling off the tablecloth without disturbing anything else.

I suppose Regwrite could do it, but I have to just replace the server name part selectively. Registry Surgery indeed.

What do you think

Thanks.
