Solved Adding a string value to the registry with a .reg file? Tags: Configuration Registry Software Windows 7 Last response: February 2, 2013 7:15 PM in Windows 7 Share chinagreenelvis January 31, 2013 4:00:40 PM I can't seem to get this to work: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\BlahBlah]"Installed Path"="BlahBlahBlah" If I delete the key and run the reg file, it recreates it, but it won't create the "Installed Path" string value. I guess I'm doing something wrong, but I can't imagine what since I'm using the same format that I've seen everywhere online. Running Windows 7 64-bit.

Well you don't, why would we be any better? Do you have self esteem issues that you assume everyone else is smarter than you? Why don't you create the key manually, then save it as a reg file? I copied your exact code (minus the numbers) and it worked fine on my computer. Make sure you don't have any extra characters somewhere.
