WSH/VBScript - How do I add a QWORD value to the registry

I need to add a QWORD value to the registry, and have only found a WSH method to write up to DWORDS (objReg.RegWrite) to the reg.  I need to add a QWORD binary value of 0.

Or, for a 64-bit value, for example

"woohoo"=hex:01,00,00,00,00,00,00,00

for a little-endian 64-bit 1

Alas, MS has seen fit to make it more difficult to create non-reg_dword, non-reg_sz registry entries.  For anything other than reg_sz and reg_dword, you'll have to make a call to RegSetValueEx().

Unfortunately, not being a VBSer, I don't know if API calls are possible.

RegSetValueEx is a VB method, not VBS.  8^(

Just thought of another possibility - make a .reg file then import it.

For example:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\EE\Testy]
"woohoo"=hex:0f,fa,b0

creates a REG_BINARY value of three bytes.
