|Show UAC Virtualized Registry Keys for All Users (Updated 1.2)|
Problem determination can be made more difficult by UAC Virtualization. This is especially true of registry virtualization. Since the VirtualStore registry key is specific to each user, you cannot get a global view of UAC registry key virtualization or even view it for a single user. This script can list UAC virtualizated registry keys for another user or for ALL other users.The registry VirtualStore subkeys are in the user registry at HKCU\Software\Classes\VirtualStore\MACHINE\Software.
Finding these keys for each user is challenging because this registry key is not stored in the user's NTUSER.DAT registry file - instead it is in the user's Usrclass.dat registry file.
It is also necessary to check if the target user's Usrclass.dat is already loaded and to load and unload it as needed.
The VBScript function CSI_ListUACVirtRegKeys() provides a method to view these keys. The function takes one argument which can be any of the following:
RoadMapIt is my plan to enhance this script to do the following: delete registry keys, view and delete UAC virtualized files and run as an MSI Custom Action.
