I have an issue where I read a DWORD registry value into a property upon installation so I can use this value within our software registry and basically the property gets stored as a string instead of the intended DWORD.

For Example


When the value is stored using the raw registry read in WIS it is = "#4"

When I reimport the property into the registry:


Does anyone know how I can import the value back as a DWORD without the use of scripts?

Many Thanks

If you set the data type to 'string' instead of 'Double Word' in the registry details it will write the registry key as a DWORD value.

I'm not sure if I'm reading you right but a value of #4 in the registry table is interpreted as a DWORD value

Registry table

So in your Registry table do you have the value of the reg key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\TCPIPPort set to #[RESULT OF DWORD READ PROPERTY]
