in reply to Failed to check if registry key is exist

I'd suggest replacing your "" in the line where you're creating $UninstallRegistryPATH with single quotes, so you can just paste in the key name and not have to worry about doubling-up the \'s. Get the key name to paste in using regedit - right click on the key and choose "Copy Key Name".

I don't know if that will fix your issue, but when I do that with a key from my registry in the same subtree (I don't have your particular node installed) in my copy of your script, it works fine.

    I've tried your suggestion with single quotes with no success.

    Can you please share your example with me.


      my $UninstallRegistryPATH = 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Window\CurrentVersion\Uninstall +\{3C3901C5-3455-3E0A-A214-0B093A5070A6}'; my $cmd = "REG QUERY ${UninstallRegistryPATH}"; print "\n----$cmd----\n\n"; my @RegKeys = `$cmd 2>&1`; foreach my $var (@RegKeys) { print "$var" }

[Corion]: erix: Well, they also seem to have changed the server, or some software, or whatever, and seem to be in the process of changing the DB schema from having the "username" as primary key to something else.
[Corion]: Far too many things being done at once, or maybe only now has it become apparent that nobody knows that piece of software anymore
[marto]: good morning all
[Corion]: I consider having an abstract key as userid in your system good, because the "real" company-wide (or even larger) user id will likely not fit your criteria well
[Corion]: A good morning marto!
