Binary registry key rewrite

Postby mohoch » Thu Jan 28, 2010 9:29 am

By using your plugin to rewrite the value of HKCU\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Internet Settings\\ReceiveTimeout, I noticed that it changes the type of the key from binary to string...

Is it possible not to change the type? Or, does the key type have any influence what so ever?

Thanks in advance for your help!

It appears the plug-in does not resolve variables. Is this intentional?

I desperately need a version of this plugin (or a similar one) that will write dwords to the registry. Specifically, I have similar problem to one of the previous posters... Sql 2005 won't install properly on Windows XP SP3 due to the MSXML component having been made a set of protected system files. There is a work around provided by MS which is to set a registry key and reboot, which temporarily disables system file protection for the duration of the rebooted session... but I need to be able to write the key to the registry immediately, then reboot, then have everything else done by Windows installer.

Any chance we can get a version of this plug-in that deals to DWORD values and not strings (or as well s strings) ?

I am unable to get the write Registry Persis plugin to write the String Value Data to the registry. Does it not allow variables?

Has anyone got this plugin working IA X4?

We upgraded recently from IA 18 and now notice that it doesn't seem to write anything to the registry, nor return any errors.
