Set or delete a value for the specified hkey in the System Registry.
SETREG hkey [name=[value type]] [/32 | /64]
hkey Specifies the path of the complete key. name Specifies the name of the value to set. value Sequence of characters specifying the value. type Specifies the type of value to set. /32 Specifies the 32-bit registry hive (default). /64 Specifies the 64-bit registry hive.
Parameter hkey must begin with one of the following System Registry names :-
and all the sub-keys must be separated by backslashes (ie. ' \ '), For example :-
Parameter type may be any one of the following :-
REG_SZ A null terminated string. REG_DWORD A 32-bit number. REG_DWORD_LITTLE_ENDIAN Same as REG_DWORD. REG_DWORD_BIG_ENDIAN A 32-bit number which is automatically converted to REG_DWORD format.
When only parameter hkey is specified then the hkey will be deleted from the System Registry. Similarly, when parameters value and type are not specified then the specified name will be deleted from the hkey in the System Registry.
The /32 and /64 switches are ignored when the WinOne® Command Prompt is running on a 32-bit version of Windows.
Most of the registry keys in 64-bit Windows are reflected between both registry hives, that is, most of the time, using either switch will yield the same result.
