Class Method Details

.DeleteKey(hkey, name) ⇒ Object

::Win32::Registry#delete_key uses RegDeleteKeyW. We need to use RegDeleteKeyExW to properly support WOW64 systems. Still a bug in trunk as of March 21, 2016 (Ruby 2.3.0)

def DeleteKey(hkey, name)
  check RegDeleteKeyExW(hkey, name.to_wstring, 0, 0)
end

.DeleteValue(hkey, name) ⇒ Object

::Win32::Registry#delete_value uses RegDeleteValue which is not an imported function after bug 10820 was solved. So we overwrite it to call the correct imported function. https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/10820 Still a bug in trunk as of March 21, 2016 (Ruby 2.3.0)
