    Hello All,
    I have been trying to create a registry entry which my Script file searches for and performs
    a certain action upon successfully identifying it.
    HKLM/Software/XYZ
    XYZ is the key I am creating. XYZ also has a subkey making it
    HKLM/Software/XYZ/ABC
    Now I am adding a string value to ABC as say LMN which has a value data in it as say 123.
    Now my Script searches for the presence of '123' in this path
    HKLM/Software/XYZ/ABC. Upon finding it and verifying it performs a pre programmed action.
    All this works fine on 32 bit version of Win7.
    But, in Win7 64 bit, it is not being identified. For that matter no key under HKLM/Software
    is being recognised, except for the keys under HKLM/Software/WOW6432node.
    Please help me here.
    How can I make those keys under Software visible and actively recognizable.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.
