I see ok but the strange thing is the code used as is, worked perfectly 
well when I was using the custom-post-type-ui plugin, but when I am 
using the register_post_type function to register my post types they 
appear in wordpress, but none of the code below returns any information 
about my custom post types, it just returns an empty array.

var_dump( get_post_types( false ) );
var_dump( get_post_types( array( 'public' => true, '_builtin' => false 
), 'names' ) );
var_dump( get_post_types( array( 'public' => true, '_builtin' => false 
), 'objects' ) );

I have the same issue as this person here 
http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/18950 but I have tried the code 
submitted by Big Bagel, see below and this doesn't work either, the 
above functions still dont return anything for there custom post type.

$args =>  array(
     'public' =>  true,
     'publicly_queriable' =>  true,
     'show_ui' =>  true,
     'show_in_nav_menus' =>  true,
     'exclude_from_search =>  false
register_post_type( 'my_custom_post_type', $args );

Thank you
