View Full Version : Reg_Read
06-17-2004, 05:40 AM
I am trying to setup a macro to read a value from the registry using the Reg_Read system function. As soon as I enter the function name in the Value textbox, VBP trying to display the tooltip and I get an error message (please see attached) above expanding the macro value.
Is there anyway round this?

I'm not sure what could cause an error messagebox to be shown instead of a tooltip. When I do Insert Macro -> REG_READ -> OK and hover the mouse over the field, I get a tooltip with "<Error expanding macro value: Invalid hive name>" (expected since the value has not been set). You might try re-downloading and re-installing VBP in case something got corrupted.
As far as the error message itself, it sounds like the registry key you provided is not valid. Take a look at the RegEdit.bld sample for a sample use of the REG_READ macro.

I have only recently upgrade to 5.4, but I can install it again from scratch.
As for the key being invalid, I never get the chance to enter any of the parameters.
