Hello,

Was just wondering if type REG_MULTI_SZ is supported.

Want to rewrite a win2k entry.

Thanks

Sorry but you cannot modify a REG_MULTI_SZ key directly in AutoPlay Menu Studio. One option is to write a reg file *.reg then execute regedit.exe and pass the reg file as a command line argument

Im having the same problem, but i did find a way around it, i am aware you and export a .reg, but it requires a "yes and/or ok" and it doesnt look proffesional. Its annoying, but it might help a little. what u do:
write to a variable the multi_sz's value
then u set value as the registry, i find it rights the registry, but sometimes it requires you to open up RegEdit and just open it and close it. >.< im trying to make it change servers for warcraft 3 expansion beta...

Hey Stoutpuppy please learn to be more polite in our forum. Adam IS most certainly a member of the Indigo Rose team and he was just trying to help. Thanks for the help but we'd prefer you refrained from attempting to police our forums, we'll take care of that kind of stuff...

Yeah - what Corey said. There're way too many good things that Adam and company have done for us AMS users to have relatively new forum members trouncing on their good name.

A responsible thing to do when you notice a post that seems questionable is to use the "Notify Moderator" button in the Post Extras section at the bottom of each post. That keeps the forum moderator informed quickly while avoiding embarrassing yourself.

Just use regedit's /s command line option to make it automatically answer yes to all questions.

If you would like to merge a REG file with the registry silently, "File - Execute" action should be used. Use the "File - Execute" action to launch regedit.exe, you will them pass regedit the "/S" command line argument (forcing it to run silently), a space, and then the full path to your REG file.

Would this work if you handed to have a reg file with variables to use with your application? Probably better than putting them into the registry individually through AMS.

That post was from 08/24/2001. We did not have an official Indigo Rose logo at that time. I apologize for the spelling mistake.

Yes, it would work. Although you might still prefer to do it with individual actions, to avoid the need for the external .reg file. Each method has its pros and cons.
