Adds subkeys or value names to the registry, optionally setting the value. The AddRegSection name must appear in an AddReg-type item in an Install section such as DefaultInstall.
Registry root name. Can be one of these values:
Optional. Identifies the subkey to set. Has the form key1\key2\key3.... This parameter can be expressed as a replaceable string. For example, you could use %Subkey1% where the string to replace %Subkey1% is defined in the Strings section of the INF file.
Optional. Identifies the value name for the subkey. For string type, if the value-name parameter is left empty, the value of the subkey specified in the subkey parameter is set to a NULL string. Note that the value-name parameter can be expressed as a replaceable string. For example, you could use %Valname1% where the string to replace %Valname1% is defined in the Strings section of the INF file.
Optional. Determines both the value type and whether the registry key is replaced if it already exists.
|0||(Default) Value is an ANSI string. Replace key if it exists.|
|1||Value is a hexadecimal number. Replace key if it exists.|
|2||Value is an ANSI string. Do not replace key if it exists.|
|3||Value is a hexadecimal number. Do not replace key if it exists.|
Optional. Value to set. Can be either an ANSI string or a number in hexadecimal notation and Intel format. Any item containing a binary value can be extended beyond the 128-byte line maximum by using a backslash (\) character. A string key of the form %strkey% can also be given. The strkey must be defined in the Strings section of the INF file. To use a % character in the line, use %%.
At least two fields are required, however one can be null thus at least one comma is required when using this form.
The two items in the example AddReg-type section below add two value names to the registry. Note that %25% will be expanded to the machine's Windows directory.
Note: Using an INF there is not a way to add dwords in Windows 95/98/ME, but there is a way to trick the system to believe that you did:
Set a binary key to the value of 01,00,00,00. This will reflect the same as a dword of one.
