      Hmmn. That one isn't supposed to be listing subs. You supply the sub, it lists the key names in a clip wizard. Were you running my "Test GetRegSubKeys" ?

      Two values in a key? Maybe is a type the Notetab ^$GetRegValue$ function doesn't read.

      That bites doesn't it <g>

      >I opened win32::tieregistry in NoteTab. It defines shortcuts for the main reg branches ie Lmachine can use instead of the longer hkey_local_machine

      Yes, but not a good idea for clip integration that doesn't recognize the shortcuts. Speaking of shortcuts, I read yesterday that HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG, whose keys Notetab's ^$GetRegValue$ won't read, is a shortcut for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Config. On my computer I found HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Config\0001\etc seems to have the same branches and keys as HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG\etc.

      Notetab's ^$GetRegValue$ function works fine when using the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Config\0001\etc key info.
