PSRR – Remote Registry PowerShell 3.0 Module

November 2, 2011

PSRemoteRegistry

One of the new improvements in the .NET Framework version 4 is the Microsoft.Win32.RegistryView enumeration.

On the 64-bit version of Windows, portions of the registry are stored separately for 32-bit and 64-bit applications. There is a 32-bit view for 32-bit applications and a 64-bit view for 64-bit applications. Many of the 32-bit keys have the same names as their 64-bit counterparts, and vice versa. In the 64-bit version of Registry Editor, 32-bit keys are displayed under the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\WOW6432Node.

I’m pleased to announce that the PSRemoteRegistry module has a new version specifically for PowerShell v3 that implements the new feature mentioned above. The new module, now called PSRR (to avoid name collisions with the previous module and to allow you to type less when you load it), was rewritten and is using the new language features introduced in PowerShell v3. To improve the readability of the functions, all functions’ help are now stored in MAML files (instead of comment-based help).

The major addition to the PSRR module is the ability to manage both 64-bit and 32-bit registry keys and values by using the new View parameter (available on all module functions) from PowerShell x86 or x64 instances. See the help for any function on how to use theView Parameter.

    Hey Shay, awesome tool. When I try to delete a key, Im getting: Exception calling “DeleteSubKeyTree” with “1” argument(s): “The procedure number is out
    of range.” in Powershell v3.

    Any ideas?
