Registry keys with spaces - still an issue

Beitrag von SisterOfMercy »

A registry key with spaces cannot be opened when run in a 64-bit process.

Code: Alles auswählen

DefVar $Administrator_SID$
DefVar $escUserProfile$
Set $Administrator_SID$ = GetUserSID("Administrator")
Set $escUserProfile$ = "%" + "USERPROFILE" + "%"
Registry_local_admin_folders /SysNative

[Registry_local_admin_folders]
openkey [HKEY_USERS\$Administrator_SID$\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders]
set "Desktop" = REG_EXPAND_SZ:"$escUserProfile$\Desktop"
set "Personal" = REG_EXPAND_SZ:"$escUserProfile$\My Documents"
Running the Registry_local_admin_folders with the /64Bit parameter the results are the same.

Code: Alles auswählen

I've once opened a topic, but I didn't explain it very well back then: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=4951

Hi SisterOfMercy,

thank you for bringing this to our attention - again!

I did open an internal ticket referencing to this with your proposed fix attached.
I assume that there probably will be more lines that need a fix like the one in the old topic applied.


With kind regards

Niko

Hello SisterOfMercy,

there was a problem with spaces in registry keys which was fixed some time ago but I think your error is of a different kind. I could reproduce it and it seems to depend on paths and permissions:
[HKEY_USERS\.Default\User Shell Folders] and [HKEY_USERS\.Default\UserShellFolders] work fine for me since HKEY_USERS\.Default already exists, whereas
[HKEY_USERS\User Shell Folders] and [HKEY_USERS\UserShellFolders] produce your error.
Maybe your HKEY_USERS\$Administrator_SID$ does not exist and you do not have the permission to create it; that might be the reason why

Code: Alles auswählen

openkey [HKEY_USERS\$Administrator_SID$\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders]
fails.
Please check this if you are still on the case ;)

Kind regards
Anja
