Then maybe USBOblivion didn't run with the required privileges: try right click and "Run as administrator"...

Bad link for USB Oblivion v1.10.2.0. The download is at http://code.google.com/p/usboblivion/ and not at http://code.google.com/p/usboblivion/downloads/list

RegFromApp v1.32

Checker on 1 Jun 2014

RegFromApp monitors the Registry changes made by the application that you selected, and creates a standard RegEdit registration file (.REG) that contains all the Registry changes made by the application. You can use the generated .REG file to import these changes with RegEdit when needed.

for thiose having trouble with this app, there are 2 versions; 32bit and 64bit. if you run a 64bit OS you'll probably want both - 32bit for monitoring 32bit apps and 64 for 64 apps

only problem i run into with this wonderful app is it doesn't work for all apps.

@Magibon

I find that RegFromApp will only capture reg writes if the app your monitoring is actually doing the writing.

Let's say your monitoring an app/installer that creates a 'Working directory' e.g. %temp%/MonitoredApp and dumps some files that now write to the registry, these writes do not get captured because the monitored app is not doing the writing.

How I find RegFromApp useful:

1. In concert with Regshot: RegFromApp will only capture writes from the program not the system.

2. Capture and Export: I use Chromium web browser and pass args on the command line to keep all files in the app directory e.g. --user-data-dir=.\
The only problem is that when I "Make Chromium my Default Browser" it doesn't transfer the command line to the registry.

By starting Chromium from/within RegFromApp as an admin I can capture these reg entries and export for editing (search and replace) with a text editor and add the command line and merge back into the registry.

There is now a 'Regres.dll' in the RegSeeker2.55.zip Archive.

FAQ: Does anybody know, for what this DLL is?

thx

Regshot2 Unicode v2.0.1.70

Checker on 24 Jul 2013
  • 612KB (uncompressed)
  • Suggested by Lupo73

Regshot2 Unicode is a registry change and file system change detection diff tool that takes snapshots, generates HTML reports, and creates automatic REG undo/redo scripts. The program can save/load snapshots to file for later use, while registry path and file path inclusion/exclusion rules can be set to include/exclude paths in the snapshots.

The program includes two components:

  • Registry Shot - It will automatically generate UNDO.REG and REDO.reg registry scripts based upon the difference between two snapshots taken at two points in time.
  • File Shot - will catch file changes based on either timestamp, size, or CRC32/MD5 and report these changes in an HTML file

Note: Regshot2 Unicode is not an update to Regshot, but a unique program. Although it shares a similar interface, it is a code fork by a different author and has many more features.

Regshot v1.9.0

webfork on 22 Nov 2013
  • 129KB (uncompressed)
  • Suggested by Crash

Regshot is a small registry compare utility that allows you to take a snapshot of your registry make changes to your system (such as installing a program) and then taking a second snapshot to compare. The comparison report can be produced in text or HTML format and contains a list of all modifications that have taken place between the first and second snapshot. In addition, you can also specify folders (with subfolders) to be scanned for changes as well.

Alternatively, RegShot Portable automatically switches between 32 and 64-bit and adjusts paths.

How to extract: Download the source + binary ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch regshot.exe.

Oh, I hadn't realized that the wincert download link requires registration. Here is a backup mirror I have created that will stay up:

robertcollier4 - The Regshot2 you are posting about is a different app. It's either a totally different freeware app that copied the layout or an app illegally using the real Regshot's code as a base and not distributing the newer source as required by the GPL. Either way, this entry is about the real Regshot, which is open source, Unicode, portable and has 32-bit and 64-bit versions (the PortableApps.com version even switches between them automatically). It's also under active development unlike 'RegShot2' which is abandoned.

robertcollier4 on 2013-07-06 11:19

Different entry has been created for Regshot2:
http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=2505
I feel Regshot2 is superior because of its ability to detect and report on filesystem changes and also because it creates ready-to-merge UNDO.reg and REDO.reg script files for you.
