Which programming language I can use to modify Windows registry? Can I use js or powershell?

  • What do you mean by "use in regedit"? In regedit you can use only mouse and keyboard.

  • as I remember in regedit values we can run windows script host commands. Can we use alternative tools or framework in regedit values? Mar 21, 2021 at 21:43
  • You can use many programming languages to modify the contents of the registry. That's quite different than using a programming language in regedit

  • I didn't mean "to modify the content" I mean putting commands in regedit values so we can put script in ram not disk. Mar 21, 2021 at 21:47
