There is a typo in both the original Import2 posting and in the Zip file
The Import2\Subdirectory1 "Binary1" entry
contains this string ...,726f,... (missing ',')
Not sure what WSH functions people are using...

I thought the missing comma was a test to find BAD data and ignore it like Regedit does. The tests do not expect to find that Value.

it works just fine for me!

kixtart fixes that automatically.

btw, the actual score was:
KixGolf score = 602

forgot to remove some debug code [Big Grin]

Yeah, I "fixed" it too at first, but that particular value reported an error and in my zombie state late last night it seemed as though it was not suppose to exist according to the test code. So I recoded my script to check for missing commas and discard the line. [Mad] [Frown] [Confused]

Somebody let me know if it was a typo. Now that I am again awake, I might be able to collate the tasks at hand. [Roll Eyes]

also, didn't get a reply to my question:
do we need to supress return codes?
I mean, function return 0 on success. can we let them be output to console as long as the function works?

when we must replace the regedit /s, do we also need to have setconsole("hide") in our function?

as it does not have all reg types...
uttleast seems so.

anyway, forgot one feature. that means my score will increase. [Frown]

I'll be back.

ok dudes.
I'm getting also over 1000 here.
didn't use the explicit and now it does not allow any of my lines.

if not getting it working, will leave this battle. too much frustration.

Folks:

I just uploaded a new .ZIP file with the test script and the .REG files. Get it here: http://people.bu.edu/jenmeyer/kixtart/golf.zip

And yes, there is a faulty dataset in one of the .REG files, and I put this in deliberately [Big Grin]

There doesn't need to be UNICODE support in this routine, just support for REGEDIT4 .REG files.

With regards to return codes, the only return code is the one for ImportRegFile(), there shouldn't be any screen output inside the UDF.

I alos have put a Windows 2000 UNICODE file into the ZIP package, which is NOT part of the test script.

The test script basically checks whether the keys/values/types are correct, and whether the appropriate keys/values have been deleted.

BTW, my count is currently 1813 without shortened variables and using pure KiXtart (not even a call to an outside object) but including some error checking for correct file type and syntax.

No, you don't need that. I was imagining a simple UDF that runs the .REG files fed to it and returns an error code inducation whether the file was imported correctlt or not (e.g. file not found). Since REGEDIT /S doesn't tell you if some imports haven't been doen because of syntax error, it is not necessary for the UDF to do this either.

Finally, I didn't put all types of registry entries into the test .REG files, just the most important ones. So, a UDF posted into the UDF section might need to contain those cases, too, but for this exercise, it is not necessary.

no. I can admit this is getting weird.
if I loose explicit and novarsinstring and array support my script works fine.

if I try to make it work with any of those, only errors occurs... [Eek!]
I won't sleep tonight, that's for sure.

I have used it only with multiple strings...

just to make a point...

jens, this is really nice.
when vars in strings is off the values get there nicely.
when it's on, all valuenames get written as strings.
also it messes up my data fields.

I didn't sleep last night. [Frown] Been at this forever.

I am now exploring some alternatives. I haven't checked everything and I don't if everything works correctly yet, but I can correctly enum everything. It's interesting at (KixGolf score = 909).

Jens, was I correct in NOT correcting your faulting data set and not loading the value? Or should we repair it and load it?

I understood that it does not matter do we load or not.
as data correctness checking does not need to be.

mmm...
golf.kix checks for defaultvalues. that's ok.
but, my script does not create them and still they come up in regedit. and your script says 7 errors found.
if I've understood correctly, default value is allways there when key is made and it can't be removed.
and when not set, it also is reg_sz.

anyway, my script is fine now with your strict rules and it also works with the reg-types not needed by this golf course.

KixGolf score = 775

btw, hoby, your v3 gave just score 0

cheers,

Did turn on counting by putting a ";!" at the beginning of your function?
