Description of problem:
Use 'hivex-node-set-value' to set value with type=1 (type=1, A Windows string (encoding is unknown, but often UTF16-LE)), and read that value by hivex-value-utf8, command failed.
I check the value in a running windows guest, it's an unreadable code. may hivex-node-set-value does not work well.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
