Constant Summary collapse

REGISTRY_VIEW_NATIVE =

This is the default view. It reflects what the remote process would see natively. So, if you are using a remote 32-bit meterpreter session, you will see 32-bit registry keys and values.

0
REGISTRY_VIEW_32_BIT =

Access 32-bit registry keys and values regardless of whether the session is 32 or 64-bit.

1
REGISTRY_VIEW_64_BIT =

Access 64-bit registry keys and values regardless of whether the session is 32 or 64-bit.
