#1427 closed Bug (No Bug)

RegWite REG_BINARY wites data to registry that cannot read by other application

Reported by: grabalife@… Owned by:
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: Severity: None
Keywords: Cc:


This command worked fine in v3.2.12.0
" & $device & "\HKLM\SOFTWARE\SOMETHING\Default", "Password", "REG_BINARY", "DBD83CFD727A1458")

Result with v3.2.12.0

Result with V3.3.3.2 and V3.3.4.0

New behaviour of RegWrite for binary string does not produce good results. Values written by 3.3.2 and 3.3.4 are not correct for other application (not written in AutoIT) to read and are ignored.

You do not understand the change in the RegWrite function. A 'binary string' is a string beginning with 0x and then containing an even number of the characters 0123456789ABCDEF

So the RegWrite mus be:
RegWrite("...", "...", "REG_BINARY", "0xDBD83CFD727A1458")
Better style is to use an explicit Binary-cinversion:
RegWrite("...", "...", "REG_BINARY", Binary("0xDBD83CFD727A1458"))

Thanks, appreciate the explanation. I was thrown by the fact it worked previously and then didn't and there was nothing I could see in the help file to explain what I was doing wrong. Thanks again.
