The Classic Agent supports all SYS functions. The Open Agent supports all SYS functions with the exception of
SYS_GetMemoryInfo defaults to the Classic Agent when a script is executed.
The following SYS functions behave differently depending on the agent that is used:
- SYS Function
- With the Classic Agent,
SYS_GetRegistryValue returns an incorrect value when a binary value is used. Use the Open Agent with
SYS_GetRegistryValue to avoid this issue.
- When setting the pointer after the end of the file, the Open Agent does not throw an exception, while the Classic Agent does
throw an exception.
- The Open Agent does not allow the
] character to be part of a section name, while the Classic Agent does allow it. Also, with the Open Agent,
= must not be part of a key name. The Classic Agent allows
= to be part of a key name, but produces incorrect results.
Note: Error messages and exceptions might differ between the Open Agent and the Classic Agent.
