Yet Another Registry Wrapper

Project description

YARW: Yet Another Registry Wrapper

This recipe provides “Registry”, a Windows registry wrapper class that makes it easy to work with the Windows registry. The class works with an inner class named “RegistryKey”, which wraps up a Windows registry key and provides methods to access and manipulate the key information. The class provides easy to remember substitutes for long method names of _winreg.


# Prints the RegistryKey instance
print key
# Prints the key name and the wrapped up PyHKEY instance
print key.getkeyname(), key.getkey()
corekey = key.openkey(1)

idx = 0
# Print the install path for Python 2.4 if installed.
while True:
        keyname = corekey.enumkey(idx)
        idx += 1
        if keyname == '2.4':
            keyVersion = corekey.openkey(idx)
            print keyVersion, keyVersion.getkeyname()
            keyPath = keyVersion.openkey(2)
            print keyPath, keyPath.getkeyname()
            print 'Install path is %s' % keyPath.getvalue()
