Hey Experts.  When I run "reg query" on a remote pc from a batch script, I get so much information that I don't need in my log file.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\shareddlls
    C:\Windows\system32\vfpodbc.dll    REG_DWORD    0x1
    C:\Windows\system32\FM20ENU.DLL    REG_DWORD    0x2
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\INK\INKDIV.DLL    REG_DWORD    0x2
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Ink\rtscom.dll    REG_DWORD    0x2
    C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 10.0\Resource\TypeSupport\Unicode\Mappings\win\CP1252.TXT    REG_DWORD    0x1
    C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 10.0\Resource\TypeSupport\Unicode\Mappings\win\CP1258.TXT    REG_DWORD    0x1
    C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 10.0\Resource\TypeSupport\Unicode\Mappings\win\CP1257.TXT    REG_DWORD    0x1
    C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 10.0\Resource\TypeSupport\Unicode\Mappings\win\CP1254.TXT    REG_DWORD    0x1
    C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 10.0\Resource\TypeSupport\Unicode\Mappings\win\CP1253.TXT    REG_DWORD    0x1
    C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 10.0\Resource\TypeSupport\Unicode\Mappings\win\CP1251.TXT    REG_DWORD    0x1
    C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 10.0\Resource\TypeSupport\Unicode\Mappings\win\CP1250.TXT    REG_DWORD    0x1
    C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 10.0\Resource\TypeSupport\Unicode\Mappings\Mac\SYMBOL.TXT    REG_DWORD    0x1
    C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 10.0\Resource\TypeSupport\Unicode\Mappings\Adobe\zdingbat.txt    REG_DWORD    0x1
    C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 10.0\Resource\TypeSupport\Unicode\Mappings\Adobe\symbol.txt    REG_DWORD    0x1
    C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 10.0\Resource\TypeSupport\Unicode\Mappings\Mac\ROMAN.TXT    REG_DWORD    0x1
    C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 10.0\Resource\TypeSupport\Unicode\Mappings\Mac\CORPCHAR.TXT    REG_DWORD    0x1

Open in new window


How do I code the script so that the information I don't need is parsed out?  Such as, if I wanted only a couple of entries listed instead of lines of information.  

C:\Windows\system32\comcat.dll    REG_DWORD    0x3
C:\Windows\system32\comdlg32.ocx    REG_DWORD    0x2

Thanks for your help

That's fairly easy if the files don't have spaces in them; just create a space separated list and pipe the reg.exe output to findstr,exe:
@echo off
setlocal
set DllList=\msvcp100.dll \msvcr100.dll
reg.exe query HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\shareddlls | findstr "%DllList%"
