Registry Export/Import From DOS: Win XP Pro
- Hi All,
This is probably a generic type question, but I'm in WinXP Pro
The short of it is, how do I install (Import) a registry file
from DOS in XP Pro? My Exported registry is the following where
XP is installed.
The long of it, what I am trying to do and why...
When I tried to reinstall IE6 last week, it created a very big
mess along with me having to unplug a lot of hardware for the
install and plugging it back in one at a time because of it
hosing everything up and me needed to reformat and install XP Pro
again. Anyway, after about a two hour install when I finally
figured out the problems of what should have been 30-60 minutes
according to Windows <g>, my IE image display it still messed up
as you noticed in my other post. Because of that I could not
read the screen to make a user account (which I found out later
that was at the screen I was at. I just kept tying in some
letters and then return. So, now I have 37+ registry entries
with "bbbbbbb" as various folder names. I tried to go into the
registry and rename them all to "jwa", but then Windows makes a
number of backup system folders.000 (or bbbbbbb.sojourner) that
cannot be deleted from Windows. It would be a long process to do
them all from DOS. (I also tried to Export the registry, make my
changes in NoteTab and then Import it, but that fails because of
folders being in use.
