Is this posssible? For example i have a entry with the Name "DefaultProfile" and the Value "test". How can i export only this one entry not the full tree?

I was thinking about somethign like reg export HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Outlook\Profiles\DefaultProfile

But this doesen't work.

I have managed to write a script to at least read the entry for further use. My code:

$query = reg query HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Outlook\ /f DefaultProfile /s
[array]$rest = $query | select -first 3
$rest -split " " | Select -last 1

  • Why would it not work ? It definitely is possible to export one entry with one value.

  • So, if you have the values you need in a variable and that's what you need why don't you pipe it to a file?

  • When you say 'doesn't work', what error do you encounter or what exactly is happening ?
