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. | Report abuse Reply to hang-the-9 Best solution Monkey With a Mouse February 2, 2013 2:24:33 AM http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd379001%28v... | Report abuse Reply to Monkey With a Mouse chinagreenelvis February 2, 2013 7:15:12 PM Best answer selected by chinagreenelvis. | Report abuse Reply to chinagreenelvis Register or log in to remove Ask the community Post an answer Tom's Hardware>Forum>Windows 7>Adding a string value to the registry with a .reg file?> Related ressources: ForumBatch file to read registry ForumImporting a registry value for adapter cards ForumOops, I Deleted MSGINA.dll String Value ForumRegistry Problem ForumRegistry Add Commands ForumRun Batch file before Windows XP loads ForumRegistry -based GPO for IE6 SP1 on Win2K ForumWindows 7 virtual device driver format in the registry is invalid ForumAdding multiple reg files ForumAdding Registry Entry Question ForumHow to chnage registry by a GPO ForumRegistry Parameter Value Illegal error message (Browser) W2K ForumDeleting Registry keys in a ADM file with Windows 2000 ForumHow to create batch file to install reg file Forum"Virtual Device Driver format in the registry is invalid."
