    Exclamation Startup Tools Bug

    Registry Path for HK_LM:Run Global (64-bit) is shown same as HK_LM:Run Global (32-bit) as:

    HK_LM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

    when it should be:

    HK_LM\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

    When you right-click and select Jump-to-key it opens the wrong place in Regedit.

    Regards, Paul

    Exclamation Correction

    Registry Path for HK_LM:Run Global (32-bit) is shown same as HK_LM:Run Global (64-bit) as:

    HK_LM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

    when 32-bit location on a 64-bit version of windows should be:

    HK_LM\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

    When you right-click and select Jump-to-key it only shows the 32-bit values because it appears to load the 32-bit version of regedit rather than the 64-bit version.

    Unhappy And...

    And if you have the 64-bit version of regedit open, then jump-to-key doesn't work at all.

    Default Thanks for reporting

    Hello,

    thanks for reporting this issue. I will write a bug ticket for our development team. Do you have a more detailed 'Autorun' example?

    Tested the 'Jump to location' feature on Win 8.1-64 Bit with our latest beta version (Startup Tools 2.3.36.157):
    The Registry Editors 'C:\Windows\SysWOW64\regedit.exe' and 'C:\Windows\SysWOW64\regedit32.exe'. jump both to a registry key, if opened prior to Startup Tools.

    Kind regards,
    roberto.
    Please help us improving Spybot and download our distributed testing client.

    Exactly!!

    You need to use C:\Windows\regedit.exe to be able to see 64-bit registry entries - I suspect that if you have this loaded then Spybot tries to load the SysWOW64 version (which displays only 32-bit registry entries) but it doesn't load because the 64-bit version is running.

    Basically, Spybot should only ever load C:\Windows\regedit.exe regardless of whether it is a 32- or 64-bit version of Windows.
