Subject AW: Ant and the Windows Registry
Date Fri, 13 Oct 2006 13:13:51 GMT
AFAIK the PreferencesAPI works only on a part of the Windows Registry, but I havent tried.
I dont know the Orangavolt Ant Tasks, but using tasks is the way I would prefer ...

Another way would be creating a reg-file and executing regedit for importing that.
