in thread access 64bit registry from 32 bit Perl

goto C:\WINDOWS\SysWOW64 in explorer, double click on cmd.exe,

Microsoft Windows [Version 5.2.3790] (C) Copyright 1985-2003 Microsoft Corp. C:\WINDOWS\SysWOW64>cd .. C:\WINDOWS>cd Sysnative C:\WINDOWS\Sysnative>
Only 32 bit processes can see it. It doesn't exist in a 64 bit process. Server 2003 x64 used for above example (I did apply the MS patch to enable sysnative on server 2003 btw). If I try a normal (64 bit) cmd.exe I get
C:\WINDOWS>cd Sysnative The system cannot find the path specified. C:\WINDOWS>

    Yes, you're right. I add the absolute path to my code and get what I want. The Sysnative only visible by 32bit cmd.exe. Thank you!

    Bulk88: I still got a problem if you can see it. the regedt32.exe seems must run using run as administrator in Win7. So it comes a problem when I want to run it quietly without any manual interference. What I can think is using runas before it. but runas didn't support password...I don't know how to do then...could u help me? or I had to create a new thread

      You could always use

      psexec -? -accepteula /accepteula 1>NUL 2>NUL

      psexec.exe -d -l -u username -p password myfoo.bat

      -d Don't wait for process to terminate (non-interactive). -l Run process as limited user (strips the Administrators grou +p and allows only privileges assigned to the Users group). On Windows Vista the process runs with Low Integrity.
