Changing\Add Windows Registry Values

How can I change\add values to the Windows Regsitry using Coldfusion ? I am particularly interested in changing\adding to the registry items that are connected with ODBC.

I would be grateful for all advice offered regarding this.

Thanks in advance

The obvious answer is the CFRegistry tag or the undocumented CFNewInternalRegistry:


Get the OBDC listing:
<CFREGISTRY
    ACTION="GETALL"
    BRANCH="HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC.INI\ODBC Data Sources"
    NAME="ODBCList">

Loop through the listing (use var.entry, var.type, and var.value)
<CFLOOP QUERY = ODBCLIST>
    <CFOUTPUT>#ODBCList.entry# #ODBCList.type# #ODBCList.value#<BR></CFOUTPUT>
</CFLOOP>

You can also add items with this tag:
<CFREGISTRY ACTION="Set"
    BRANCH="HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC.INI\ODBC Data Sources"
    ENTRY="hola"
    TYPE="String"
    VALUE="Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)">


Hope that helps.

with CFREGISTRY.

But, ColdFusion Administrator can disable CFREGISTRY.
