Native Registry

(imported topic written by rmnetops91)

Would it be a correct assumption that anywhere we have relevance that should be inspecting both 32 and 64 bit OS’s, we should change any reference of “of registry” to “of native registry”?

Unfortunately, no…

32-bit apps typically use the 32-bit registry and 64-bit apps typically use the 64-bit registry… So if you have a 32-bit app on a 64-bit computer, then I think you will get the wrong answer if you say “native registry”…

Here is an interesting trick that works in many cases:

values “Test” of keys “HKLM\Software\BigFix” of (registry;x64 registry)

This will find the value if it exists in either (or both) registries…
