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

with CFREGISTRY.

But, ColdFusion Administrator can disable CFREGISTRY.

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.
