Read The Windows Registry in Two Lines of PHP

This came to me via. tek-tips. Here is how to use PHP to find the path to Firefox.


$shell = new COM("WScript.Shell") or die("Requires Windows Scripting Host");
$devenvpath=$shell->RegRead("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\App\\Pathsfirefox.exe");

Happy automation.
