EXAMPLES

-------------------------- EXAMPLE 1 --------------------------

C:\PS>$Key = "System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\WinStations\RDP-Tcp"

Get-RegDWord -ComputerName SERVER1 -Hive LocalMachine -Key $Key -Value PortNumber

ComputerName Hive Key Value Data Type
------------ ---- --- ----- ---- ----
SERVER1 LocalMachine System\CurrentCon... PortNumber 3389 DWord


Description
-----------
The command gets the Terminal Server's listening port from SERVER1 server.

-------------------------- EXAMPLE 2 --------------------------

C:\PS>[Environment]::Is64BitProcess

False

PS> Get-RegDWord -Key SOFTWARE\MyKey -ComputerName Server1 -Value DWord -Data 123 -View Registry64

ComputerName Hive Key Value Data Type
------------ ---- --- ----- ---- ----
Server1 LocalMachine SOFTWARE\MyKey DWord 123 DWord


Description
-----------
This command is using an elevated 32-bit instance of Windows PowerShell to read values on
a 64-bit registry section of a remote 64-bit server. First we verify that the current console
is a 32-bit instance by using the Is64BitProcess system environment variable.

Connecting to the 64-bit section of the remote server registry is done using the View
parameter.

-------------------------- EXAMPLE 3 --------------------------

C:\PS>Get-RegDWord -ComputerName SERVER1 -Key $Key -Value PortNumber

ComputerName Hive Key Value Data Type
------------ ---- --- ----- ---- ----
SERVER1 LocalMachine System\CurrentCon... PortNumber 3389 DWord


Description
-----------
The command gets the Terminal Server's listening port from SERVER1 server.
You can omit the -Hive parameter (which is optional), if the registry Hive the key resides in is LocalMachine (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE).

-------------------------- EXAMPLE 4 --------------------------

C:\PS>Get-RegDWord -CN SERVER1,SERVER2 -Key $Key -Value PortNumber -AsHex

ComputerName Hive Key Value Data Type
------------ ---- --- ----- ---- ----
SERVER1 LocalMachine System\CurrentCon... PortNumber 0xd3d DWord
SERVER2 LocalMachine System\CurrentCon... PortNumber 0xd3d DWord


Description
-----------
This command gets the Terminal Server's listening port from SERVER1 and SERVER2.
The command uses the ComputerName parameter alias 'CN' to specify a collection of computer names.
When the AsHex Switch Parameter is used, the value's data returnes in HEX notation.
