Error Accessing The System RegistryApr 18, 2007
I have the error: "Error accessing the system registry" when I am in VB6. Goto Project --> References then I have that error.
I have the error: "Error accessing the system registry" when I am in VB6. Goto Project --> References then I have that error.
I would be grateful for information or a link to a clear explanation on issues relating to accessing the registry in a 64 bit system (I don't have access to a 64 bit machine so can't test). I have a VB.Net app' that needs to read the registry to find where Ghostscript is installed. This is: key = Registry.LocalMachine.OpenSubKey("SOFTWARE\GPL Ghostscript")
If the VB.Net app (made on my 32 bit machine) is run on a 64 bit machine, will it still work (assuming the key for Ghostscript is the same on 64 bit)? Or do I need to manually access the 'Wow6432Node' registry or something? Plus, are there any security implications reading the registry or can I safely assume that an installed app' will always be able to read the registry?
I try to install Visual Basic 4-32bit on Vista Business but I get an error message 'VBCustom_Controls_Actions_Reg_Graph was unable to register itself in the system registry' ; is there a way to get around it ?View 1 Replies View Related
I'm using VB 2005 Express Edition.I'm trying to use VB to do a few things, the first of which is to display the data behind the registry key at;
The data I want list should look something like:
This shows no errors initially, but complains about not being able to convert "string()" to "string" once I run it. I'm assuming this is because the data I want is a line of string entries, but I can't find a solution.FYI, this is a project I'm working on to heal a Conficker attack at work. Our third party support has stopped the spread and healed the servers, but has now left me with the job of doing a 3 minute registry fix on each of our 400 computers, hence the attempt to automate it!
I'm trying to access a registry key that has a space in it, specifically:
SoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionWindowsU pdateAuto Update The key is valid and I believe the code is, though I can't get any keys with spaces to open using Registry.OpenSubKey
The following code fails only for keys with spaces: subkey = New String("SoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersion WindowsUpdateAuto Update")
m_hive = m_hive.OpenSubKey(subkey, False) Dim val As Object = m_hive.GetValue(key)
I'm coding this neat little project that's kind of a hack into the SanDisk U3 Cruzer's ability to have both a CDFS and FAT32 File System. This is helpful because the program is burned to the CDFS (It's basically slip streamed as an .ISO in place of the original U3 .ISO), and the settings files (which I've developed as text files) are placed on the root of the flash drive. The program itself is VERY simple actually, except I'm having a slight issue that's really driving me insane:
The drive path of the Flash Drive won't be the same from computer to computer. I.E... The files are "UAI.txt" and "UInfo.txt". The root of the drive on my comp is "I:", but on my laptop is "F:". So if I program the path from my computer as the absolute path, an exception is thrown when the path changes on another computer. I cannot have this happen. It is probably THE MOST crucial element to this program. How can you save and read info if you can't find the files? =P
So I've gone through so many threads and forums trying to find a batch of code to allow me to make the path relative. I've found the following code (modified, of course). It works PERFECT in Debug, but throws an exception once packaged to the CDFS partition:
For a project, I need to extract all the frames of an AVI video. This I have accomplished by with free program. The problem: it took a 30 second clip and spit back 5400 some frames, and the image only changes every 20 frames or so. I really only need about 270 frames, but I didn't want to go through each one manually. So, I wrote a small program using Visual Studio 2008 and VB to open each image in binary and compare it to the one before that. If there is a discrepancy of more than 55000 (to accommodate slight errors in capturing), it leaves the file be. If not, it deletes it.
After much troubleshooting, I got it all to work. I ran it on the directory containing the images, but when it finished, only the first image remained. I checked into it, and found that the FSO loop I have set up to loop through each file was pulling the files in apparently random order. It will give me the image "bg(01).bmp" and then immediately "bg(1362).bmp" and so on. And the order changes every run.
I tried setting up an array to generate a list of all the files and then sort them, so I could pull off the name of the file, then the next one, ect. but it took over 3 hours to finish processing the array, and then It was using a huge chunk of RAM.Is there some way to "force" vb to pull off files in alphabetical order? here is my, code, it belongs with a form. fPath is a global variable, simply pointing to the source directory.

My application needs to change the default signature of outlook and I need to change the value of a registry key for this. But I get a error that I probaly don't have enough permissions. Strange thing is, if I change it manually it doesn't complain.

I have a VB.NET console application that must write a message onto a queue (resides on the mainframe). We have all the clustering and everything set-up by our admin.

Trying to read key "HKLMSOFTWAREPoliciesMicrosoftWindowsWindowsU pdateAU" value "AUOptions" and get the following : A first chance exception of type 'System.Security.SecurityException' occurred in mscorlib.dll Error occurs in ReadRegistry key SOFTWAREPoliciesMicrosoftWindowsWindowsUpdate AU : Requested registry access is not allowed. This occurs in my vb.net application when application is run under an account called OPER in the USERS group. The application :
1/is on my PC's hard drive, its not a web app or on a network share
2/is launched via a desktop click
3/ has a manifest specifying executionlevel "AsInvoker"
It does not occur when the Application is run as an Administrator. It does not occur if I read the value with a non .NET program when logged in as OPER whch makes me think it is a .NET problem not a registry permissions problem. Examining "Effective Permissions" shows that my OPER login has query value permission.I need the application to be able to read the key like the non .NET application while running at USERS level.
I am using VS 2008, Office 2007, and Win7 Home Premium on my system.I have a simple application which should be a breeze to build. All I am attempting to do is pull data from an Access database with four small tables into a data grid on a windows project. Should be simple, set up the data connection, choose a datagrid from the table in the data source view, drag it onto the page and done, right?I can't get it to work. It will all work fine until I attempt to run or debug the project. The data will not show up. The data grid does, but I get this error: A first chance exception of type 'System.InvalidOperationException' occurred in System.Data.dll
As I said, the project seems to build fine, but it will not pull the data. After the initial build I get the message that Windows will show this page in Compatibility View. Is it something with Win7 Home Premium, or a setting somewhere?
I'm trying to use DataView.Rowfilter and I'm getting an exception which says "Cannot perform 'Like' operation on System.Int32 and System.String".
Here's the code...

It gives me "Cannot perform '=' operation on System.Int32 and System.String" error.

In all the years that I've been coding I have never come accross this issue or error. For the past 3 months I have been working on two separate apps. Initialy I started out with Win Vista and things were going great except for how slow my comp was running. So I reinstalled the Vista OS. Everything was going great until Mar 7th when this error just started occuring within my code.
"Access to the registry key 'HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareTornadoAppsSwift BudgetUser' is denied"
TornadoApps/Swift Budget are strings created upon App install or first run of App in VB 2008.The User value along with 9 other values were all working fine prior to Mar 7th.Now this line along with many others like it with defferent strings and values were working just fine till this week. So i figured that I'd just upgrade to Win7 hoping that would fix it. IT didn't. So I reformatted and installed fresh Win7 and still have the error. So I have figured out that it isn't my OS. Cuase it was working in Vista then just quit working.

I am trying to add a registry key in to the file "MyApp" which doesn't yet exist in the registry key directory, when I try and write this key however I get an error from the debug console telling me the "NullReference was unhanded". If I go and manually make this folder it works brilliantly, I thought that this code would make the folder as well?
this is strange, I've got a macro with an array containing several registry keys.
And I want to insert the values of these into predefined bookmarks in a Word document. This works great if the key is there, but if it isn't, I want the code to skip that and continue trying the next one in the array. I've got the code that looks like this:
I'm editing some settings in the registry and then adding items to a ListView.
If I'm not mistaken, the code will not continue in the Try block if the first part fails and then move on to the catch statement, correct? I'm adding and deleting a bunch of different entries in the registry and the computers I've tried my app on so far, have not failed. So I'm not able to test if this method will work for error catching. If there's a better method, I'd appreciate the info.
I'm writing an application that imports and tidy up address data into a cleaned, deduped excel workbook ordered in rows with each column as an address field. One of the issues I've ran into is that we sometimes get a workbook where the multiple address fields are held in a single cell with line breaks. I've written code to extract all of this data out of the excel sheet in to a dataset with each sheet as a table and the address fields contained within. I now want to create a new Excel workbook from this data with the address fields in Row and columns the problem I have is I can Open/create the Workbook but when I try to insert a new Sheet (Table) I get an error saying the Workbook is read only....
