Environment

Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 10.3 Bundles
Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11 Bundles
Novell ZENworks Configuration Management 11.1 Bundles

Situation

The backslash (escape) characters from Windows registry export files are not removed if part of a registry key or value name.

Example:

If the contents of the Windows registry export contains the following:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Test]
"C:\\Test\\1\\2\\3"="C:\\Program Files\\Test\\1\\2\\3"
when importing the file as a "Registry Edit" Bundle action, the results will be:

Value Name: C:\\Test\\1\\2\\3
Value Data: C:\Program Files\Test\1\2\3

The results should be:

Value Name: C:\Test\1\2\3
Value Data: C:\Program Files\Test\1\2\3
