Hi -

I am trying to use a KBOX script to read a registry key on end user machines and compare that to a predefined value. The problem is that the key value is a string that traverses multiple lines and I can't figure out how to specify this as the case. The KBOX reads the data as "value1", "value2", "value3". However, whenever I specify that format as what to look for, it doesn't recognize it (presumably because you can't include quotations in the comparison criteria). I have tried escape characters (\), logical identifiers (AND), etc.

Any ideas?

Do you mean the reg value type is of REG_MULTI_SZ?
If so:
  • Go to a machine that has the test data you want in the registry.
  • export that key from registry
  • examine that in a text editor
  • compare against that value. will look something like hex:62,00,6c,00,61,00,68

Thank you for your help, however, I did try that and it doesn't appear to be working. Attached are my pictures of the .reg file (the key in question is "Security Packages" at the top. In addition I have attached screens of my script that compares the value, and the result.

You are correct that it is a REG_MULTI_SZ type value.

Just a point on terminology: Security Packages is a value not a key.

What editor is this and I hope those backslashes are not making it's way into your verify "equal to" field.

Beyond that some client logging would be great. Please open a ticket to troubleshoot the nitty gritty.

That screen is from notepad++ but it looks exactly the same in notepad.
