I'm trying to import a .reg file from Cygwin shell using
The dialogs pop up asking if I want to apply the registry changes, and I click yes, but no changes are made. If I run the exact same command through command prompt or by double-clicking the .reg file, the changes are applied correctly. What is it about Cygwin that would prevent regedit from working, and how can I go about modifying the registry from Cygwin?
I found out that my changes were being applied, but to some other dat file somewhere. When I just call regedit from Cygwin, I get a bunch of different keys than I would expect (for example all MSSQL keys are not there, but many other keys are)... Why does Cygwin open a different file?
