Subject [jira] Created: (DAEMON-131) Win64 build: //DS// fails to delete registry keys
Date Thu, 10 Dec 2009 01:32:18 GMT
Win64 build:   //DS// fails to delete registry keys
---------------------------------------------------

                 Key: DAEMON-131
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DAEMON-131
             Project: Commons Daemon
          Issue Type: Bug
         Environment: Win64; I've only seen it on AMD64, but presumably it would also happen
on ia64.
            Reporter: Jesse Morris
            Priority: Minor


When creating and accessing the configuration registry keys, the tool uses CreateRegKeyEx
with the KEY_WOW64_32KEY flag, telling windows "Use the 32-bit hive instead of the 64-bit
one".  Maybe this was done so that 64-bit daemons could use the configuration from 32-bit
ones?  

Anyway when it's time to go and delete the configuration from the registry it uses the ancient
SHDeleteKey call, which tries to delete the key from the 64-bit hive, which fails, so the
key is left behind.
