in reply to How to look for application path

Below a simplified sample. Still problems to read the default value

#!/perl/bin -w ################################################################### # # Purpose: Declaration of Modules to use in this script ################################################################### use strict; use Win32::Process; use Win32API::Registry 0.21 qw( :ALL ); my ( $key, $type, $data ); RegOpenKeyEx( HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, "SOFTWARE\\Adobe\\Acrobat Reader\ +\5.0\\InstallPath", 0, KEY_READ, $key ) or die "Can't open SOFTWARE\\Adobe\\Acrobat Reader\\5.0\\Install +Path: ", regLastError(),"\n"; RegQueryValueEx( $key, "(Default)", [], $type, $data, [] ) or die "Can't read SOFTWARE\\Adobe\\Acrobat Reader\\5.0\\Install +Path\\(Default): ", regLastError(),"\n"; RegCloseKey( $key ) or die "Can't close HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SYSTEM\\Disk: ", regLastEr +ror(),"\n";
