i know there were already questions with this
subject on that board, but i didn't found a useful

Running Ruby 1.8.4, Win2000 | Win2003
i want to read and write some registry values.

I know there is Win32::Registry, but i don't know
how to use it.

i.e. i need to read / write key/value pairs under =3D


Questions =3D

1. the part with S-1-5- ... changes for every machine, how to get the
right keyname ?

2. how to get all entries under that key in a hashmap ?

3. how do i edit those entries ?

Regards, Gilbert

You can use a generic RegEx for question #1.
