#798 closed Bug (Works For Me)

RegRead / RegWrite broken inside Windows 2000 Pro SP4

Reported by: ppass@… Owned by:
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: Severity: Blocking
Keywords: registry regread regwrite w2k Cc: ppass@…


I want to dynamically change proxy settings inside IE. I cannot find any dedicated functions inside Autoit to do this, so I must change directly values inside Windows registry.

I am using Microsoft Windows 2000 Professionnal 5.00.2195 SP4 and the latest version of AutoIt3 (v3.3.0.0)

:) If I create a new registry entry with a registry editor, RegRead() will return the right value.

:) If I change the value in the editor, RegRead will return the changed value.

:( If I change the value with RegWrite, the actual value seen with the registry editor is not changed (even after a refresh - restart of the editor). Autoit returns no error (error code is 1)

:( If I change the value with the registry editor, then RegRead does not report the new value, sticks to the last value changed with RegWrite.

:( Even if I delete the entry from the registry, RegRead keeps reporting the value changed by RegWrite.

It seems that RegRead/RegWrite is totally disconnected from the actual registry database.

Could you look into this as having access to the registry with AutoIt is one of its key features.

Please email me back, I need a quick fix.

You need to read WikiStart because you did about a billion things wrong.

I'm closing this as "Works For Me". The odds of the registry functions being so fundamentally broken as the poster claims seems incredibly unlikely.
