How to read registry value of dir path inside batch file

Hi all
I need to get variable with path of Firebird isntallation
i created bat file with code:

FOR  /F "tokens=3* " %%i IN ('reg query "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Firebird Project\Firebird Server\Instances" /v "DefaultInstance"')   DO @echo %%i


unfortunately path is with space characters. Below the result of reg execution:

C:\>reg query "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Firebird Project\Firebird Server\Instances" /v "DefaultInstance"

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Firebird Project\Firebird Server\Instances
    DefaultInstance    REG_SZ    C:\Program Files (x86)\Firebird\Firebird_2_0\

SO i need the result at the end of code like that FBDIR="C:\Program Files (x86)\Firebird\Firebird_2_0\"

I'm not sure what you are asking, but if you need to remove spaces then do this:

FOR  /F "tokens=3*,delims="
0

correction - use a semi-colon:

FOR  /F "tokens=3*; delims="
0

I usually do it this way.


FOR /F "tokens=2,*" %%i IN ('reg query "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Firebird Project\Firebird Server\Instances" /v "DefaultInstance" ^| Find /i "DefaultInstance"')   DO @Set FBDIR="%%j"
