[Help] Me edit the registry correctly, hotfix needs reg entr

Post by ricktendo64 » Tue Sep 09, 2008 7:43 pm

OK I am puzzeled, not sure if I am doing this correctly but these two hotfixes need some extra reg entries to turn on/off something.

To enable this hotfix, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
2. Locate the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\EapHost\Configuration
3. On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.
4. Type IdentityEncodingFormat, and then press ENTER.
5. On the Edit menu, click Modify.
6. Type 0x1, and then click OK.
7. Exit Registry Editor.

1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
2. Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion
3. On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click Key.
4. Type Diagnostics, and then press ENTER.
5. Right-click the Diagnostics subkey, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.
6. Type GPSvcDebugLevel, and then press ENTER.
7. Right-click GPSvcDebugLevel, and then click Modify.
8. In the Value data box, type 0x30002, and then click OK.
9. Exit Registry Editor.
10. At a command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
gpupdate /force
11. View the Gpsvc.log file in the following folder:
%windir%\debug\usermode
The thing is I cannot manually "type" the letter "x" in the Modify box, I can only cut and paste it from the browser into the modify box

My question is this: Wich is correct, just entering the # without the 0x or copying and pasting the 0x# from my browser into regedits modify box (the two different methods have two different outcomes)

0x is just a prefix that signals that the following digits should be read as hex. Omit the 0x and make sure that you editing the DWORD in hex mode. (same goes with the "h" suffix; e.g., 0409h and 0x0409 are both hex numbers and should both be read as 1033 in decimal)
My addons: CmdOpen - HashCheck - Notepad2 - MS Runtimes - DirectX

Into the breach, meatbags!
