Registry Wrapper

I've made an app in Visual Basic for wrapping registry settings. It works basically the same as Registry Rapper, but has support for multiple registry paths. It launches regedit from command-line to do all registry editing.

You can download it here: http://pickeringfamily.customer.netspace.net.au/RegRap.zip

Please let me know what you think.

Cheers,
Will

%appdata% and %userprofile%

Firstly, this is certainly something to think about. However, I developed this program in about an hour for my own use. I've been doing a lot of work on my computer lately (upgrades, windows updates, etc) and wont have much time to do much developing.

Having said that, I'll check how VB handles those paths and probably incorporate that sometime.

Could you please give me some examples of programs that use these paths so that i may use them in my testing?

Thanks,
Will

It's made in Visual Basic

It's made in Visual Basic 6... therefore no .net dependencies (or none that i know of).

And just a thought... how can you be worried about dependencies if you've got a corrupt download?

And regarding the corruptness... i downloaded it in FF as a test, it did indeed say it was corrupt. I downloaded it with an external program (BitComet for those who know of it) and it worked fine. Maybe it's a cache problem.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
Will

Corruptness

Perhaps it's a cache thing. Maybe we need to find someone who knows.

I'm guessing

It's to do with support for download resuming.

Getting the app

Can't get the download to start. Is it possible to get this hosted somewhere or mirrored where it will be avail. 24/7?

Mirroring...

It's hosted on my own personal website space. As far as i know, there is nothing wrong with the space (ie no downtime or anything).

Make sure you have the correct capitalization in the address. For some reason it doesn't seem to download if the capitals are not correct.

I found a way with three

I found a way with three simple batch files to introduce registry changes and restore back the old values in multiple keys

I've stored the whole thing here
http://www.hostfiles.org/download.php?id=B4052C47

hope that someone will find that useful
