mind you... I havent touched mirc scripting in like ... 5 years :P
so don't shoot me down :P

can someone give me simple demonstration
how can mirc (6x version if possible) read certain
data from windows registry, and returned value echo in window

for example to read windows SKU, under
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\Current Version: ProductName

I found this: http://forums.mirc.com/ubbthreads.php/ubb/showflat/Number/26829 which works, but I can't get it to return a value:

alias regread {
  var %a $ticks
  .comopen %a WScript.Shell
  if ($comerr) return ERROR
  var %c $com(%a,RegRead,3,bstr,$1)
  if (!%c) || ($comerr) {
    .comclose %a
    return ERROR
  var %b = $com(%a).result
  .comclose %a
  return OK %b

//echo -a $regread(HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProductName)
Simply returns OK here, whereas I can see the correct value using the registry editor (/run regedit)

Right, the problem is that:

The trick is to use a COM object to execute some VB
