getting values from the registry win 7 vbs

Hello given the following code:
strComputer = "."
Const HKCU = &H80000001 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER
strKeyPath = "Software\x\y"
szvalue = " "
szvaltype = " "
strname="z"


       Set oReg= _
          GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" _
          & strComputer & "\root\default:StdRegProv")
      
       oReg.GetStringValue HKcu, strKeyPath, strname, szValue  

      wscript.echo szvalue

      
  Where z is a reg_sz with a value of 1 does the code above echo reg_sz and not the value 1 ?

the above should return 1, what's the problem? try to run the code in elevated permission (right click, run as administrator)

i just ran your code on xp and win7, they both return 1
and it gives a runtime error (invalid use of null) if the key does not exist!
is this the exact code your using? or your modifying it for experts exchange? if so, check your code, you might have a typo!
i'm using win7 ultimate sp1;
and xp sp3

Dany BalianCTOCommented:
can you try this code?
Dim oWshShell
Set oWshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

GetValue "HKCU\SOFTWARE\x\y\","z"

Sub GetValue(value, name)
Dim strValue
On Error Resume Next
ValueData = oWshShell.RegRead(value & name)
num = Err.Number
If Not IsEmpty(ValueData) Then
strValue = Trim(ValueData)
WScript.Echo " " & name & "=" & strValue & ", typeName=" & TypeName(ValueData) & ", rval=" & CStr(rval) & ", err=" & CStr(num)
End If
On Error Goto 0
End Sub
