Can somebody confirm this.
Should SETENV/GETENV be writing/reading to and from the System Registry?
After installing ACAD 2013 as a trail this now seems to be the behaviour, only found it when GETENV calls started to fail. This has also affected previous versions installed on the same workstations.
Any help would be appreciated.
This is a blanket security set by the OS.
You will need to unlock this, even if you have administrator permissions.
START -> Run -> REGEDIT
should bring up a security dialog box where you can make the adjustment.
If not, you are going in the right direction...
I have limited access to 7 and encountered this problem using
VL-REGISTRY-WRITE, but have not actually resolved this, yet.
Sorry I got my commands mixed up. I was trying to access ACAD variables using getenv instead of getvar.
I guess that happens when I spend too much time looking at these lovely lines of code.
More sleep required here!
GETENV will only return a select number of values from the registry
(mostly in the <<user profile>> area).
If a registry key/subkey contains a space or a dot ".", you have to fetch
the value using VL-REGISTRY-READ.
