Description

Writes an arbitrarily large binary value (which can be set at runtime) to the Windows Registry.

This overcomes two shortcomings of the standard WriteRegBin command:

  • Binary values have to specified at compile-time.
  • Maximum size of the value is 511 bytes.

See Example.nsi for a usage example.

Usage

  1. Call writeRegBin to write the data in one step. Max value size is 511 bytes.
-or-
  1. Call init to initialize the registry information and the buffer.
  2. Call append to add to the buffer.
  3. Optional - repeat steps 3 to append as many times as desired.
  4. Call write to write the data to the registry.

Notes

  • init and append functions MUST be called with /NOUNLOAD so that the buffer does not get lost.
  • This plugin requires NSIS 2.0b3 and above.
  • All functions return "success" and "error" on success and error, respectively (duh!).

Available Functions

  1. init root_key subkey valuename valuedata
    • root_key must be one of:
      • HKCR or HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT
      • HKLM or HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
      • HKCU or HKEY_CURRENT_USER
      • HKU or HKEY_USERS
      • HKCC or HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG
      • HKDD or HKEY_DYN_DATA
      • HKPD or HKEY_PERFORMANCE_DATA
    • valuedata is in hexadecimal (e.g. DEADBEEF01223211151).
  2. append valuedata
    • See init for valuedata description.
  3. write valuedata
    • valuedata is in hexadecimal (e.g. DEADBEEF01223211151).
