Is there a way to create a virtual Registry and force only certain programs to use this one? Or to create a virtual Registry but which i can shut down (this registry will be only used while i activate it)?!

Or redirect all querys to another place in the registry

Open for any help. Appreciate your help.

I don't know if it redirects registry calls per-se, but you might want to have a look at Sandboxie. – Breakthrough Dec 13 '11 at 12:22
Thats not what i'm really looking for: more like this: but this costs too much. – planIT Dec 13 '11 at 12:47

Use boxedapp or boxedapppacker. this is the best solution.

BoxedAppSDK_CreateVirtualRegKey The function creates a virtual registry key. Its arguments are similar to the arguments of the winapi function RegCreateKeyEx. [C++] LONG __stdcall BoxedAppSDK_CreateVirtualRegKey( HKEY hKey, LPCTSTR lpSubKey, DWORD Reserved, LPCTSTR lpClass, DWORD dwOptions, REGSAM samDesired, LPSECURITY_ATTRIBUTES lpSecurityAttributes, PHKEY phkResult, LPDWORD lpdwDisposition );

And many other features. Great SDK.
