Hi Guys,

I want to read the value at the location "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\OEMInformation"
Through Wise7 or Wise8 on a windows7, 64bit machine.Please provide me a suitable solution to go ahead with this.
The approaches used to read this: Using wise script it failed
A vbscript was called in wise to read the above registry value.
But still I was not able to achieve, Any suggestions will be helpful

Do bear this in mind when reading the registry in 64-bit mode

Use these custom actions to access the 64-bit registry; will save you a lot of time: http://www.symantec.com/connect/downloads/wise-installation-builder-7-64-bit-registry-script-actions

Here is some plugin code you can use in your VBScripts to selectively search the 32 or 64-bit registry nodes.

Dim objWMI, objReg
Dim objCtx, objLocator, objServices, archCOL, archOBJ, strOS64, strRegSearchType

Set objWMI = GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set objCtx = CreateObject("WbemScripting.SWbemNamedValueSet")
Set archCOL = objWMI.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_Processor",,48)

Sub DetermineOSArch ()
For Each archOBJ in archCOL
'-> X86, To determine if we are on a 32-bit OS
If InStr(LCase(archOBJ.Caption),LCase("x86")) Then
strOS64 = "0"
Exit For
End If
'-> X64, To determine if were are on a 64-bit OS
If InStr(LCase(OBJ.Caption),LCase("x64")) Then
strOS64 = "1"
Exit For
End If
End Sub

Sub Search64Or32 (strOS64, strRegSearchType)
'If we are on a 64-bit OS...
If strOS64 = "1" Then
If strRegSearchType = "A" Then 'If instructed to search the 64-bit registry...
objCtx.Add "__ProviderArchitecture", 64
ElseIf strRegSearchType = "B" Then 'If instructed to search the 32-bit registry...
objCtx.Add "__ProviderArchitecture", 32
End If
Set objLocator = CreateObject("Wbemscripting.SWbemLocator")
Set objServices = objLocator.ConnectServer("","root\default","","",,,,objCtx)
Set objReg = objServices.Get("StdRegProv")
'Else if we are on a 32-bit OS...
Set objReg=GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\default:StdRegProv")
End If
End Sub

In Installshield Adminstudio there is option to search 64 bit registry , when you add a system search for a registry where we just check the box which says 'Search the 64 bit portion of the registry'

In WPS, while adding the system search , using properties in condition can also be used to customise your installation.
Have you tried it.
