For instance I would like to determine if a value is a string, dword, or qword. Running Get-ItemProperty | Select-Object -Property * yields the registry value name and data, but it doesn't indicate the value type.

I am realizing that get-itemproperty doesn't return as much information as I expected when using the registry provider. In similar fashion to your script, the following article shows how to use .NET to retrieve the registry value name/type: http://powershell.com/cs/blogs/tips/archive/2015/04/15/getting-registry-values-and-value-types.aspx Author Posts You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
