reading registry value that is a REG_FULL_RESOUR CE_DESCRIPTOR returns exception

reading registry through keys to get to key/values,

....
String [] valstr = rksub.GetValueN ames();
foreach (String vs in valstr) {
String vstr = rksub.GetValue( vs).ToString(); // EXCEPTION
thrown if 'value' is a //REG_FULL_RESOUR CE_DESCRIPTOR; otherwise
string, DWORD, and binary work fine. Binary type returns
// string vstr = 'System.Byte[]'
....

How to read in 'R_F_R_D' reg type? Also, how do you actually determine in C#
what type a value is prior to calling
GetValue(vs) anyway?

I've just discovered a bug in some code I wrote a little while ago, and I need you guys' help to fix it. My program imports data from a standard Excel Spreadsheet (just with specific column headers). I used ODBC in my VB.NET program to read that spreadsheet into a dataset, to make it easy to manipulate. The code I use to read it is as the bottom of this posting.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
