Hello,

I have the following code:

Option Explicit
 
Const HKEY_CURRENT_USER = &H80000001 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER

Dim oReg
Dim strComputer,strValueName,arrValueNames
Dim strKeyPath1
 
Dim SyncMode5NameExists
 
ssig="Unable to open registry key"
strComputer = "."
 
Set oReg=GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\default:StdRegProv")
 
strKeyPath1 = "Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings"
oReg.EnumValues HKEY_CURRENT_USER,strKeyPath1,arrValueNames
For Each strValueName In arrValueNames
	SyncMode5NameExists = (StrComp(strValueName,"SyncMode5"))
	If SyncMode5NameExists != 0 Then
		Wscript.Echo "bla,bla"	
	End If
	'Exit For
Next
But, I get the following error, no idea what it is.
C:\scripts\test.vbs(20, 26) Microsoft VBScript compilation error: Expected ')

Thanks for your help,

Solution 1

If SyncMode5NameExists != 0 Then

should be
If SyncMode5NameExists <> 0 Then

That is the VB not equal sign.

Hmm, so why the " Not equal to != " does not work ?

The VBScript documentation says that != is not a valid VBScript comparison operator.

See Comparison Operators (VBScript)
