Hi everyone,
I am totally lost. I want to access the value for registry entry(installpath) where my application is installed through Java script. How do I do it?
Thanks a lot,
Shweta

Hi,
this is an example form MSDN. You can look under Web Development\Scripting\Window Script Host
Windows script host should be installed on machine (it usually is).
var WshShell = new ActiveXObject("WScript.Shell");
WshShell.RegWrite ("HKCU\\Software\\ACME\\FortuneTeller\\", 1, "REG_BINARY");
WshShell.RegWrite ("HKCU\\Software\\ACME\\FortuneTeller\\MindReader", "Goocher!", "REG_SZ");
var Key1 = WshShell.RegRead ("HKCU\\Software\\ACME\\FortuneTeller\\");
var key2 = WshShell.RegRead ("HKCU\\Software\\ACME\\FortuneTeller\\MindReader");
WshShell.RegDelete ("HKCU\\Software\\ACME\\FortuneTeller\\MindReader");
WshShell.RegDelete ("HKCU\\Software\\ACME\\FortuneTeller\\");
WshShell.RegDelete ("HKCU\\Software\\ACME\\");
