I have an old SSD (150mb) running Win7 along with 3 other HDDs. I disconnected everything , installed a new 480mb SSD and a new licensed copy of Win7. If I reconnect the old SSD will I have the ability to select which drive to boot from? What really important for now is booting from the old SSD and being able to access all my programs (MSOffice, Adobe, etc.) as I make the migration. I don't care if there's a fancy slection menu or just a prompt at boot time. Along those lines is there a way to migrate all …

>Take Heed There are lots of things to be aware of with the Windows Registry. In most cases the best thing to be aware of is that ideally you should avoid playing with it at all costs. Alas, we are what we are and we do what we do. My advice to you is to make a back up of your registry. Remember though, values are read and written continuousley without our knowledge, and reverting to a backup made 10 minutes ago may not reflect your current systems settings so be careful. >Backup Your Registry Start RegEdit, Search for RegEdit …

Hi guys, need help here. I would like to check the registry key is exist for this code: Sub main() Dim regKey As Object = Registry.LocalMachine.OpenSubKey("SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{D75F38ED-E49A-48F3-9B72-D4BC5FE73B44}", True) ' Check if it exists If regKey Is Nothing Then MsgBox("Registry key does not exist!") Else MsgBox("Registry key is exists.") End If End Sub It telling registry key does not exist, but when i remove "{D75F38ED-E49A-48F3-9B72-D4BC5FE73B44}", it managed to find the registry key. So Im suspecting it couldn't detect special symbol like parentheses "{" & "}" ? Anyone could help me to figure out?

Heelloooo good day. Thanks for seeking to help. I am creating a Java program(obviously). At the end of my work I wish to install it as (a)an .exe file. However I wish that after its installation, file type association would have been setup automatically(I phrased that latter part of the statement like that, because I'm not sure if file association can be coded, or if it must be accomplished via other tools). I have ruled out JWS(Java Web Start) though. SO once again: 1. Program must be a(an) .exe file. 2. And the installation process should seamslessly create the file …

Hi. I have an application in C#. When installing the msi, the user is requested to input some values and these are entered in registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MyFolder. When running the application, the value is read from the registry location and the application uses these values for processing. This works fine on Windows XP. Now I have recently moved to Windows 7 64 bits. When installing the application on Win 7, the registry entries are created at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\MyFolder. The problem I am having is that I have hard coded my application to read values from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MyFolder. How do I change this …

Does any one know of a registry hack whereby one could add a 'move/copy to folder...' to the right click menu when in Windows Photoviewer? It is insanely useful in Windows Explorer and this would save me time and headaches :) Using 7 Ultimate. Also, I miss all the extras that Photoviewer had in Vista, but were inexplicably dropped in 7 (useful stuff like size, etc).

Hello all, I am trying to get a bunch of sub-keys and values from the registry in vb 2010 and i remember in vb6 this was quite easy. Can anyone share code to help? Or a link where I can go? I've been searching for nearly 8 hours on line and can't find anything I can use. The microsoft sites don't really help and most of the articles I find are for vb 7, or vb 6.

Remember when you had to use a whole host of 'utility downloads' just to keep your PC running smoothly? Windows has had optimization tools built in for ages now, so surely the days of PC optimization suites are long over? Not so according to iolo, which has just released System Mechanic 11 - the latest suite of such tools to hit the market since it first launched way back in 1998. ![dweb-sysmech02](/attachments/small/0/dweb-sysmech02.jpg "align-right") With over 40 million users since those early days, System Mechanic is certainly the best known of the tune-up suites for Windows.

I've been strugglin with this all day. I'm trying to use python to walk through a registry key and delete all the values it finds. I've succeeded in getting it to find all the nested values, but as soon as I try to delete one, I'm met with "WindowsError: [Error 2] The system cannot find the file specified." I'm sure it's something simple I'm doing wrong, but I can't for the life of me figure out what it is. from _winreg import * def find_subkeys(key, subkeys, scanned_subkeys): current_key = OpenKey(HKEY_CURRENT_USER, key, 0, KEY_ALL_ACCESS) for i in range(4096): try: subkey = …

I am having trouble with my PC. The tip of the iceberg is an inocuous message which displays everytime I launch iTunes, as below: "The registry settings used by the iTunes drivers for importing and burning CDs and DVDs are missing. This can happen as a result of installing other CD-burning software. Please re-install iTunes." I have uninstalled and reinstalled iTunes twice now but to no avail. I suspect the problem relates, as it indicates, to other software that I have used. I have previously installed and used Handbrake, DVDVideoSoft Free studio, and no doubt others that I can no …

Greetings... I am a new member to DaniWeb. My Wife's system began its current symptoms about a week ago 08-10-2012.

(we must right-click and choose OPEN) a. the START menu b. desktop c. Quick Launch (which disappears after each reboot after we have clicked to have it display) 2. We could no longer move icons on the desktop to another location until I ran a. regsvr32 ole32.dll and b. regsvr32 /i shell32.dll c. It solved the problem of icon movement, …

If finds value, method returns key path ! Problem is an error `Cannot convert type 'char' to 'string` in` foreach (string key_value in key.GetValue("NetCfgInstanceId").ToString()) ` .

Hi, I have to create several services that have to use some sort of registry, to store and get data from. Also, services should have to communicate with each other, in order to exchange data, using the previously mentioned registry. Each service should be able to connect to the registry in order to get data. I've created the individual WCF services, but how to create the registry ? Should the registry also be a wcf service?

For example, even if I include some library in my C++ program that lets me store data in registry, which directory should I store the data in, etc. (Eg. HKEY_LOCAL_USER or _MACHINE). (Talking about Windows PC). Also, If I want to launch a program (exe) on startup, there are many ways of doing it from the Registry (using "Run", "RunOnce", "WindowsNT" folder(s) etc.), …
