That might be an enhancement requestion you may need to file here -- Enhancement Requests -- potentially. (If memory serves, Windows itself had 255 char limitation on a whole bunch of things, and I'd usually advise against holding 1000's of chars worth of depth in the registry).
In the meantime, there's other ways around that.
Step 1 - run a script locally that picks up the registry key & value you're after.
Step 2 - cough out the value(s) you want into a custom data file.
(The Inventory Scanner can pick up entire files, not just individual registry keys).
Step 3 - Configure your Inventory Scanner to go seek that custom data file. You do that via the LDISCNHLP.INI as is documented here -- How to extend the Inventory Scanner capabilities .
That's a bit of a workaround / round-about way to get what you want, but should work quite fine, until the reason for the native cap of 255 chars is extended.
Hope that helps .
Thank you, phoffman.
I'll give that a shot!
Happy to help!
