I couldn't solve the problem so I reinstalled the OS. But I did a fresh install over the non-working W8.1 so that my stuff will be stored in Windows.old so that I can retrieve them later.

You can also REG import foo.reg in which foo.reg is a file containing the usual registry information as you'd export from regedit.exe. In your example, this would be something like: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment] "Path"="C:\Program Files ...

That message is coming because the REG command is writing to either the standard output stream or the standard error stream. If you really don't care about the messages, you can redirect that output so that it is not displayed. Change your command to: REG QUERY "HKLM\SOFTWARE\SomeApp\Server" /v ServerName > nul 2> nul

I recently found a VERY powerful yet FREE, simple and flexible tool that can be used for key remapping and much more. You can also compile your customizations (scripts) and provide them to others without the need to install the tool. It's called AutoHotkey (or AHK) and it seems to have a good user community. See the following 2 sites: ...

In the field of computer forensics, downloading registry hives from computers and then examining them later is common. (Like when someone caught with child porn begins to wipe their hard drive but the cops are able to pull the plug before the wipe can finish.) There are many tools out there that allow you to examine registry hives. First off, try using ...

Perhaps you have a very bad male-ware on your PC. Open your Windows explorer, navigate to C:\Windows\system32 and make a copy of regedit.exe, e.g. to regedit_copy.exe. Are you able to start the Registry Editor with the copied file? If yes, then navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options and ...

This setting is stored in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\UserPreferencesMask. The registry value itself is a binary value that represents a bitmask of various settings. Its format is documented here Unfortunately this document is a bit oudated and does not contain information about this particular setting. By experimenting with this value I have ...

Don't forget that %ProgramFiles(x86)% will expand with spaces in the name so the path(s) needs to be enclosed in quotes. It might work like: "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Feliratozo\Feliratozo.exe" "%1" Also, Frank Thomas is correct about %ProgramFiles(x86)% not working on 32bit Windows. Variables are expanded based on the parent process though. %ProgramFiles% ...

First of all, the HP 6830 is one of their newest printers. There is no "older software" We are still on the original. I did run a registry clean program, no help. In the end, I just hard deleted the Lexmark files from the registry. It seems one of the problems is that I was never able to successfully install XP SP3. It will never work with out SP3. ...

Change the PATH variable. Add a new environment variable, call it something random. Maybe something like CHANGE_TO_UPDATE and put a random value like x in it. Remember to restart cmd.exe or whatever program that needs to see the new path variable. This will actually trigger the settings to update when you launch a new application.

Yes, you can remove those. Also any other entries that remained so. But it's better that you use a registry cleaner / uninstall cleaner since certainly there will be more trash-things that remained around. As for the HP, try an older version of the software...and try to use the scan from the HP central program that installs with the driver. It's called HP ...

I had this same issue and here's how I fixed it for my System DSN. For reference, here are the two paths in the registry for whether the ODBC is 64 or 32-bit on a Windows 7 64-bit OS. 64-bit: \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC.INI 32-bit: \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\ODBC\ODBC.INI In the ODBC.INI folder there was a sub-folder ...
