    Reading the full registry.

    Does anyone know of a way to read the whole registry? I want to be able to take a snapshot of the whole registry and compare it to a snapshot of the registry after installing the application under test, and after certain modifications to the application have been made. Any help would be appreciated.

    Re: Reading the full registry.

    Using Regedit, you can Export the registry to a file. This is simply an ASCII text file that can be compared with any other registry export.

    I used Norton Uninstall (which I think has been replaced by Clean Sweep) to give me a report on all the changes in the registry which I print out with the report.

    Re: Reading the full registry.

    I was trying the Regedit registry->export is there a way to do this from the command line?

    I answered my own question. This will export the registry settings to the specified file.

    regedit /e [filename]

    Re: Reading the full registry.

    I can get the files no problem. I now need a way to compare the two. I have tried compreg.exe but I can't get it to work. I have tried writing my own diff function and it takes 5 minutes just to read the files. Any suggestions?
