Registry search?
« on: February 25, 2017, 12:21:06 »
I normally use regedit but decided to play with MCs registry feature as I haven't explored it properly.  ;)

I find navigating generally & jumping straight to a key much better in MC than in regedit, but I don't seem to get any results when using the MC Search function on REG:\

Regedit give results for terms I've entered in the Search dialog, but MC won't find anything.  I've tried different approaches but get nothing - my fault with incorrect registry search terms or is the Search function unable to search REG:\ directly?

Hi Ulf.

Mathias tells me this isn't implemented (yet ;)).

I highly recommend this: http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/regscanner.html

Thanks AlanJB, I wondered about implementation.  ;)

I like NirSoft generally.  Hadn't noticed this one tho!  Will try it.

Regedit can connect to remote PCs. Would be great if this could also be implemented in MCs registry feature.
