@checker: after my experience with the largely illiterate (*ducks*) masses of the Net, I believe a link is more eloquent and straightforward than a note. For one, it's part of the the database structure, while a note is easy to overlook. I motion for the link to be reinstated.

SYSTEM on 2016-01-14 16:11

@Midas: I agree. I was the one who added the 64-bit download link before Checker removed it.

Tested with Mac-formatted HFS+ drive today and this worked beautifully. Very easy and fast.

Windows Registry Recovery v1.6.1

billon on 7 Mar 2017
  • 3MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 7 Mar 2017
  • Suggested by AlephX

Windows Registry Recovery allows to directly read files containing Windows registry hives and extract many useful information about the configuration and windows installation settings of the host machine.

Note that the program is not simply a registry editor: it works with other tools, including exported keys. It’s useful for seeing registry issues, sandboxing tools, and diagnostics. To your own computer's registry files, open a NTUSER.DAT system file but keep in mind that these are usually hidden by Windows to avoid accidental deletion.

System Requirements: Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: None
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch WRR.exe.

You do nothing wrong. It's a peace of SHIT !!! Waste of time !!! At least a single line of help how to use it would be decency!

Raj Sharma on 2009-12-26 02:11

I find it a good Program. Only one of its kind. You should know where your registry hives are.

Now this great little utility saves it's settings in the local folder making it totally portable. THANK YOU, Nir !

MiDoJo on 2008-01-23 13:43

1.71 works for ie7 (even though nirsoft does not claim it) it also works for vista (with the caveat that you cannot get rid of the signature warning even if you unblock in the file properties) 1.70 Works with Vista/ie7/portably but does write some items to registry

is there a way for this program to read an Outlook (not outlook express) address book listbox of type OUTEXVLB? I do not get anything at the bottom of the screen. I have tried it with around 200,000 items and with about 800 items and nothing shows up. Is it because this program does not support this particular listbox/window???

Thanks for the great tool!

Cornflower on 2009-02-05 07:36

v1.50 now has a drag and drop button taht you drop on the window you want to see the text from. It makes this very valuable the tool so much easier and intuitive to use. An excellent upgrade, imo.

Unfortunately, it still does not seem to handle Outexvlb type listboxes.

Webfork on 2009-11-06 18:42

*Extremely* important tool for software testers. Getting lengthy error messages out of static windows is critical to helping developers understand what went wrong. If you want to help any of the makers of software on this or other sites, start with SysExporter.
