in reply to Create MSWindows Registry REG_EXPAND_SZ entry

You can also let Win32::TieRegistry handle REG_EXPAND_SZ for you:

$reg_key->SetValue('FOO', '%PATH%', 'REG_EXPAND_SZ');

Useless if you want to use a .reg file, but you could give your script a -install option to set the registry values itself

    Hey, thanks -- but why weren't you logged in so that I could give you some XP? ;-)

    I knew that there was a module-based way to handle this kind of Registry data, but I wasn't blessed with enough time at present to go find out which modules, where.

    This will be helpful for future improvements.
