Debugging Tools for Windows


The SetValue method sets the value of one of the target's registers.

    IN ULONG  Register,


Specifies the index of the register whose value is to be set.
Specifies the value to which to set the register. See DEBUG_VALUE for a description of this parameter type.

Return Value

The method was successful.
The target is not accessible, or the register could not be accessed.
The value of Register is greater than the number of registers on the target machine.

This list does not contain all the errors that might occur. For a list of possible errors, see HRESULT Values.

Interface Version

SetValue is available in all versions of IDebugRegisters.


The engine does its best to coerce the value of Value into the type of the register; this coercion is the same as that performed by CoerceValue. If the value is larger than what the register can hold, the least significant bits are dropped. Floating-point and integer conversions will also be performed if necessary.

When a subregister is altered, the register containing it is also altered.

To set the values of multiple registers, use the SetValues method instead.

For an overview of the IDebugRegisters interface and other register-related methods, see Registers.
