Hi all!

I just don't understand why "reg query hklm\software" does not return the same thing then if you go via "regedit" hklm\software?

I ask this because I need to built a batch script that poke the registry key if exit and if not add it, simple...

But when I do "reg query hklm\software" I don't see the the folder where are my keys. If I go trough the regedit I can see it...

strange...

thanks for the help.

Wow!!

But If I start the both same application from : C:\Windows\SysWOW64\cmd.exe or C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe I got the exact same listing then reg query hklm\software...

Is there a way to fixe this???
