Deletes a subkey or value from the registry.
RegDelete, RootKey\SubKey [, ValueName] ; v1.1.21+ RegDelete, RootKey, SubKey [, ValueName]
Must be either HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, HKEY_USERS, HKEY_CURRENT_USER, HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, or HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG (or the abbreviations for each of these, such as HKLM). To access a remote registry, prepend the computer name and a colon (or in v1.1.21+, a slash), as in this example:
The name of the subkey (e.g. Software\SomeApplication).
If RootKey is followed immediately by a slash (
\), RootKey and SubKey are merged into a single parameter.
The name of the value to delete. If omitted, the entire SubKey will be deleted. To delete Subkey's default value -- which is the value displayed as "(Default)" by RegEdit -- use the phrase
AHK_DEFAULT for this parameter.
[v1.1.04+] This command is able to throw an exception on failure. For more information, see Runtime Errors.
ErrorLevel is set to 1 if there was a problem or 0 otherwise.
A_LastError is set to the result of the operating system's GetLastError() function.
Deleting from the registry is potential dangerous - please exercise caution!
To retrieve and operate upon multiple registry keys or values, consider using a registry-loop.
For details about how to access the registry of a remote computer, see the remarks in registry-loop.
To delete entries from the 64-bit sections of the registry in a 32-bit script or vice versa, use SetRegView.
