I wannna set a hotkey for a program. Works, but if I use REGREAD to poll for a registry key that does not exist yet,
HOTKEY fails. Try this:

Code:
DIALOG CREATE,New Dialog,-1,0,240,160
DIALOG SHOW
 
REM Hotkey fails íf the next line is run
    %%regkey = @equal(@REGREAD(CURUSER,SOFTWARE\somecompany\key,value,1),1)
    HOTKEY ADD,Ctrl+F9
    if @not(@ok())
      warn Hotkey not activated!
    end


If the registry key is there, no problem.

%%regkey = @equal(@REGREAD(CURUSER,SOFTWARE\somecompany\key,value,1),1)

The above statement is false

Try
Code:

DIALOG CREATE,New Dialog,-1,0,240,160
  DIALOG SHOW

  If @regexists(CURUSER,SOFTWARE\somecompany\key,value)
    if @not(@equal(@REGREAD(CURUSER,SOFTWARE\somecompany\key,value,1),1))
     warn Key value not 1
    end
   else
     warn Key doesn't exist
   end
  HOTKEY ADD,Ctrl+F9
  if @not(@ok())
    warn Hotkey not activated!
  end
  exit

Aaah, yeah. Forgot to remove the @equal() part when simplifying things for the example.
So it should be something like this.

Code:
  DIALOG CREATE,New Dialog,-1,0,240,160
  DIALOG SHOW

  rem Hotkey fails íf the next line is run
  %%regkey = @REGREAD(CURUSER,SOFTWARE\somecompany\key,value,1)
  HOTKEY ADD,Ctrl+F9
  if @not(@ok())
    warn Hotkey not activated!
  else
    info Hotkey OK!
  end


It is probably a good idea to use REGEXISTS to check the key in advance. But I still think that it
is a bug when you cannot use REGREAD directly coz it actually is supplied with the default value 1 to be
returned if the specified key does not exist.
