Read the registry with Powershell

Hi,

is there any easy way to read and print (write-host) recourivly all sub-keys and value?

hklm-Software-AnySoftware

->
hklm-Software-Anysoftware-value1 = "hallo"
hklm-Software-Anysoftware-value2 = "another entry"
hklm-Software-Anysoftware-subkey1-value3 = "the3rdvalue"
hklm-Software-Anysoftware-subkey1-value4 = 5
hklm-Software-Anysoftware-subkey1-value5 = "the-last-entry"

something like this...

Thanks in advance

get-childitem comes close to that what i want to do.

get-childitem -path hklm:\Software\Anysoftware -recurse | Format-Table -prop name
shows me all the subkeys.

But i want the value store in the subkeys. With the first command (get-itemproperty) i can read them out.
But therfor i have to know which subkeys existing. How have i to pipe those two commands ?

Find out which subkeys existing -> for every subkey find out the value
And this recursively...

Thanks.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Try this out.

$path = "hklm:\Software\Microsoft"
Set-Location -Path $path
$Keys = get-ChildItem -path . -recurse
forEach($Key in $Keys)
  {
  forEach ($Value in $Key.GetValueNames()) {
    New-Object PSObject -Property @{
      Path = $Key.Name
      Name = $Value
      Value = $Key.GetValue($Value)
      Type = $Key.GetValueKind($Value)
    }
  }
}
