How does Registry Tool work?
Registry Tool imports the Windows registry from registry Dat/Hive binary files, Reg files, and directly from Windows creating a SAFE, stand-alone, Registry Tool Database file independent of Windows.

Registry Tool import sources Registry Tool editing targets

The editing commands, (add, modify, delete, Search and Delete, Search and Replace, Restore/Mass editing, and Send To), always target the Registry Tool Database. This feature enables you to edit registry backups and create custom or template Registry Tool Databases containing specific keys and values. It is an OPTION to have Registry Tool edit the active Windows registry. The Professional edition will target a remote machine. You may also elect to load ANY Dat/Hive Binary file, even from another machine/partition, and OPTIONALLY select the binary file as an editing target. You may edit the Dat/Hive binary file using one of the editing commands, or send keys and values from the Registry Tool Database into the Dat/Hive binary file. This feature enables you to fully edit any Dat/Hive binary file -- even create a new Dat/Hive binary file to replace a corrupt one..

Registry Tool analysis and search commands operate on the Registry Tool Database leaving Windows protected and secure. Registry Tool is a total system providing the tools to maintain the Windows registry. The Registry Manual combined with the Tips and Notes feature provide critical Windows registry structure knowledge -- how it works, why it works, and the function of critical keys and values.
