Reading registry key on Win7 x64
I'm reading some string from the registry like this:

I'm actually using Windows 7 64-bit. This particular program happens to be a 64-bit program, so its registry key is as specified above, i.e. not in Wow6432Node.

However, VBP7 being a 32-bit app, accessing the registry will automatically access the corresponding keys within Wow6432Node.

Is there a way around this?

Not using the REG_READ macro, but you can use the Read Registry action and check the 'Access 64-bit registry view' option.

Excellent, thanks! Works like charm.
