    Registry2 in Windows 7?

    Hi all.

    Does anyone know if the registry2 object is supposed to work correctly on the windows 7 registry?

    I'm not having much luck with win 7, but same file is working on xp systems.

    Anybody had similar experience?

    Yes, I'm running with admin privs


    I am using Windows 7 64 bit.

    It seems that when I try to save for example to
    HKLM\software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion
    it saves instead to;
    HKLM\softwareWow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version

    Any ideas around this? I need to edit the proper registry to make a windows tweaking app.

    Ohh. Interesting. That a 64 bit thing then? the Wow6432Node thing is probably the reason it's failing.

    It's because your app is 32-bit on a 64-bit system, it's going into the 32-bit compatibility section of the registry. MMF doesn't have a 64-bit runtime, so I think you're stuffed.

    EDIT: If any extension dev wants to take a crack at this, you can access either registry using this information

    Jaffob made a Registry++ object for Developer that may work in Windows 7.

    It's not Windows 7 that's the problem, it's 64-bit Windows. The 64-bit registry stuff has been there since XP x64, so it's not really new.

    Re: Registry2 in Windows 7?

    Thanks Dynosoft,

    That link really clears things up for me.
    However leaves me with a dilemma.


    The app I'm building is for tweaking the registry and I had been previously (years ago) distributing it for use on all Windows up to XP. It had become a bit dated as later version such as Vista and now 7 are widespread.

    So I have upgraded to MMF2 to get Vista and 7 Compatibility, however I had not thought about 64bit related issues.

    So far my only hurdle for making this app totally cross compatible, is this 64bit/32bit registry issue.

    Looking at the link above left by Dynosoft it would not be very hard for somebody to make an Extension that can access the 64bit registry, Unfortunately I have no experience making extensions.

    So I'm hoping some clever fellow would see this as an opportunity to build a tool that many developers would see a need for. I for one,would certainly be prepared to pay money for the extension. (I will make a request in the appropriate forum area)

    Otherwise I will have to kick along with 32bit compatibility only.

    Thank you all for your input.
    BTW I have been around the Click Scene for over ten years but been quiet for a while. My username on the old forum was WEBWIZ for those who may remember me. Great to see this is still one of the nicest communities on the net.
    CHEERS.
