Registry Tools - RegEdt32.EXE

RegEdit32 -- the command is actually abbreviated “RegEdt32.EXE” so it complies with “8.3” naming conventions -- is the other Registry tool available to system administrators. It accesses and displays exactly the same Registry (there is only one!) as RegEdit, so why have Microsoft provided us with two tools that do the same job? A good question. Although RegEdit and RegEdit32 access the registry and can perform the same tasks, there are a number of important differences between the tools (aside from the different method of display):

  • Only RegEdit can export and import .reg files, RegEdit32 does not provide this functionality.

  • Only RegEdit32 can set permissions on Registry keys and values to control who may access them.

  • Only RegEdit32 can view, edit and delete REG_MULTISZ values.

  • Only RegEdit32 can load in a complete registry hive for editing, which is extremely useful for troubleshooting and disaster recovery.

Because both RegEdit and RegEdit32 can perform the same basic value manipulation, the actions covered in RegEdit will not be recapped here.
