Read/write Win registry


#1

Hi,

i know there were already questions with this
subject on that board, but i didn’t found a useful
snippet.

Running Ruby 1.8.4, Win2000 | Win2003
i want to read and write some registry values.

I know there is Win32::Registry, but i don’t know
how to use it.

i.e. i need to read / write key/value pairs under =

HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-373698554-2142300011-3433917070-7290\Software\Cvsnt
cvspass

Questions =

  1. the part with S-1-5- … changes for every machine, how to get the
    right keyname ?

  2. how to get all entries under that key in a hashmap ?

  3. how do i edit those entries ?

Regards, Gilbert

You can use a generic RegEx for question #1.
