      Then what's a sub? I thought it be keys and *sub* keys as in

      Key:
      hkey_current_user\software\myalancapps

      sub key underneath the above key:
      hkey_current_user\software\myalancapps\app1

      Yes.

      (if I have my terminology correct) Seems to me that Perl script the other day that created a few new keys did create that one of the keys created had three separate values in it (yes, some were binary probably unreadable by NoteTab). But,

      It was a text value that I was speaking of that your clip displayed on first recurse only.

      As I said, it was read on the first of several what I call recurses. For example, here what I did:

      Actually it was a key the first time then run the clip. I Hard coded the next into the clip:

      hkey_current_user\software\myalancapps

      run clip. clip dialog comes up with that in the dialog and selected. Then just ok the dialog. Next comes up yet another dialog that shows the initially entered item (can choose it), also shows (it's here the value and its content is shown) the value (registerednotregistered) AND sub keys so as to choose a sub key

      Next, choose from items shown in wizard, choose and ok the same item as initially entered. it's the next dialog is when the listing is blank of any value.

      So, this is what I meant by the statement: any value in the hard coded key is listed/shown on first recurse. Choose same key again and the listing/value_shown comes up blank.

      (I substituted my name I don't really have an app authored by me) but just to show the structure of the reg keys I ran your clip on:

      hkey_current_user\software\myalancapps

      hkey_current_user\software\myalancapps\app1

      hkey_current_user\software\myalancapps\app1
      the value: registeredyesno textdataofyesorno

      hkey_current_user\software\myalancapps\app1\tips
      the values: several values for tips 2 be displayed


      hkey_current_user\software\myalancapps\app2

      hkey_current_user\software\myalancapps\app2\tips

        Thanks Alan,

        From what you've said, I think that the regedit export file must be a little different in Win 2k than my 98.

        You should only see the names of Values in that second wizard, and not see or get to select again the branch or any subbranches. (I thought "Value Names" were called "Keys" when I wrote that clip).

        I found a glitch in my Perl registry browser too. Turns out "default" Values are unnamed. A ^$StrTrim$ I was using in the clip was removing blank value names.

        I've made some more changes in my Perl regbrowser and I'm not sure why, but multi's and binary values retrieved no longer crash the clip. Now multis display as "Array(...)" and binaries just show up blank.

        Weird.

        Regards,

          Hi again Alan,

          Solved the problem of showing multi values such as the fonts entry for FooWriter. Have to refer to the valueString as an array if the data type is REG_MULTI_SZ, i.e., @$valueString.

          This version does that and depicts default value names as .Default in clip wizards (but retrieves the actual values using "").
