Minor tweak - just standardising my inf layouts in case I ever have to do a mass search and replace on the entire collection hehehe ;)

nice work, lookd like this would be useful for building addons w/o having to hunt down all of the necessary registry entries :)

one question though. does your addon place a shortcut in the start menu or CPL?

Yeh I can't live without this utility - I use it constantly and its way quicker at scanning and analysing comparisons than similar apps which do the same job.

Eeeeeeek I hate excessive CPL's cluttering my control panel - I only use them in a couple of my older packs that are do do with system auditing or registry configuration. You'll be able to identify which ones cos I include "CPL" in the filenaming.

Same goes for my Quicklaunch releases which will have "QL" in the filenaming. Unless otherwise named I mirror the same directory structure as my install paths to my program menus.

Thanks for asking, cos I don't think I ever remembered to explain that properly before hehehe ;)

Well I don't classify RegShot (in my mind) in that way. To me it is just an addon making support utility and that is all.

I am getting the feeling here that you are trying to hint that you would like me to rebuild this with a CPL applet - but instead of coming right out to make a direct request you are trying to disguise it as an "innocent enquiry about my reasoning" ;)

actually considering id only use it for making addons, i decided to just download the vanilla installer and stick it on my flash drive. you were right though...the more i thought about it, the less sense it made to put this in CPL!

Thanks Mrs Peel

P.S.
Looks like there is a mistake in the first post addon version:
RegShot v1.8.1.20070620
LINK: MrsP_RegShot_Addon_v1.8.1-070804

That's intentional, vertigo. The software developer happens to use a similar versioning scheme. The software was built 2007/06/20. Mrs Peel's addon was built 2007/08/04.

Notice that Mrs Peel uses a two digit year as opposed to the developer's use of a four digit year. That should give it away.

What's the difference between the newly released 1.9.0 and the older 2.0.1.70? Both seem to support unicode.

I've been using 1.8.3 beta1 for over a year without issues. I've seen 2.0.1.70 since last July, but didn't trust it because it wasn't on the official SourceForge page.

The old one is better if you are a addon maker, it can output .reg and/or .inf... this version does not even have a option dialog

Thanks for the info, Rick. Wish I had known that seven months ago. Spent a couple weeks working around that limitation with batch scripts; they parse the TXT file outputs for the information I need and format it into INF/INI entries.

user_hidden: as ricktendo said, the (now older) RegShot2 Unicode 2.0.1.70 i have uploaded in wincert is better.

5eraph: you can trust both, the "Unicode" (RegShot2) version was a different project (started in 2007 and stopped in 2010) to add unicode support among other things, hence the name Regshot(2) Unicode.
The official web page was http://regshot.ru/20/ but it is now dead so i have uploaded it at Wincert.

The one found at Sourceforge (which was pretty much abandoned for four years as you can see here) is not near as good as RegShot2 IMHO, even if this one have now unicode and X64 support.

You can run them and compare, they are both portable apps without installation needed.


edit: I have foud a page who talks about the two RegShot.

Missed that page, mooms. Some very good information. In July I saw this page instead and dismissed 2.0.1.x as potential malware. Unfortunate choice of name for 2.0. Should have chosen something more unique to avoid confusion. :)

The links to Regshot posted above and in Ratings & Reviews is from Russian
scammers apparently selling this free program (possibly with free virus
added).

That's completely false, it is a legit free Russian program, not a scam.
