winqueryreg

Get item from Microsoft Windows registry (Windows only)

Syntax

value = winqueryreg('name', 'rootkey','subkey')
value = winqueryreg('key', 'rootkey','subkey')
value = winqueryreg('rootkey', 'subkey','valname')

Description

value = winqueryreg('name', 'rootkey', 'subkey') returns the values names in rootkey\subkey in a matrix of strings. The first argument is the literal quoted string, 'name'.

If the data retrieved from the registry is a string, winqueryreg returns a string. If the data is a 32-bit integer, winqueryreg returns the data as an integer (int32).

value = winqueryreg('key', 'rootkey', 'subkey') returns the keys names in rootkey\subkey in a matrix of strings. The first argument is the literal quoted string, 'key'.

value = winqueryreg('rootkey', 'subkey') returns a data in rootkey\subkey that has no value name property.

NoteThe literal name argument, key argument and the rootkey argument are case-sensitive. The subkey and valname arguments are not.

supported root keys are: 'HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT', 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER', 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE', 'HKEY_USERS', 'HKEY_DYN_DATA' and 'HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG'.

and shortcut names: 'HKCR', 'HKCU', 'HKLM', 'HKU', 'HKDD' and 'HKCC'.
