Ziggy471’s Registry Test App

Here’s yet another test app in my process of doing a Backup and Restore app.

This one right now only allows for exporting of registry values.  It supports both ASCII (Reg Edit v4) and Unicode (Reg Edit v5) files.  It does have the following limitations:

There is now limited error checking, let me know what I missed.

  • Registry key types:
    • MultiString (REG_MULTI_SZ)
    • ExpandString (REG_EXPAND_SZ)
    • DWord(REG_DWORD)
    • Binary (REG_BINARY)
    • String (REG_SZ)
  • Root Keys
    • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
    • HKEY_CURRENT_USER
    • HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT
  • There is no save dialog, it just saves it as the same name/location of the configuration file, but with a .reg file extension.

The configuration file is very simple, I included an example in the zip file, it includes most of the owner and personal information you should need to re-import after a hard reset/flash.  There are basically two types of lines that you can have in the configuration file:

  • HKEY_CURRENT_USERControlPanelOwner – This would export all values stored in that key
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USERControlPanelOwner,E-Mail,Name – This only exports the E-Mail and Name values
