REG_SZ
« on: February 08, 2024, 01:30:39 PM »
in the records section
"HKEY_CURRENT_USER"
I created a subsection named
"ODMIH"
and here are some elements of the type
REG_SZ

how can I find out
the names of the elements of the REG_SZ type
contained in "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\\ODMIH" ?

Have you tried the Visual LISP registry functions?

yes !

The functions work for me correctly, so I cannot explain or help you without seeing your code. Check to make sure your key path and value (including uppercase and lower case characters) are correct.

The following I just pulled from my registry file at random to test it. It worked.
Code: [Select]
Command: (vl-registry-read "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\\Software\\7-Zip\\Compression\\" "Archiver")
"zip"
Command: (vl-registry-read "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\\Software\\7-Zip\\Compression\\Options\\zip" "Method")
"Deflate"

Have you tried targeting the key itself?

Code - Auto/Visual Lisp: [Select]
  1. (vl-registry-read "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\\ODMIH" "a")

I don't need to read the REG_SZ "A"

I need to know the list of REG_SZ  items
contained in this "path"
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\\ODMIH

I need to get this one :    ("a" "aaa" "b" "EEE")
