How to test registry functions in dev mode in Vista

Startbeitrag von issah am 10.11.2008 19:18

How do I avoid Vista registry re-direction while in development mode? I need to test some features but the registry functions keep getting directed elsewhere.

Any help would be appreciated.



Hello Issah,

I don't know what you mean precisely. But you can change the way values are saved by using InitParameter(paramIni,"myINIFile.ini").

Hi Mohammed,
I know what you intend. In Vista, the program should run in USER-Mode, not in ADMIN-Mode. Only Admin-Mode - after elevation of right, of course - allows for modification of registry. You could try to write your own manifest, which could end up in allowing to write to the registry. My advice: write to an INI-file in \users\all users\company\programname\ - ordinary users are meant to write there.
Kind regards,

Hello Issah

It sounds like Vista is treating the "GO" option of Windev as a legacy application and is writing the registry changes into a virtual registry entry.

You could try a registry search for "VirtualStore" to see where it is putting your entries

I think Louis's suggestion will be easier to manage because then you won't have any Vista manifest/UAC issues when you release your software.

Thanks all.

I do need to use the registry so will just have to battle it out.

Check in the Project Menu / Project Configuration / Configuration Managment
press the test mode button

Now press the advanced mode windows vista big button

There you can configure a vista manifest for your test mode.....
