find & replace
Damir Konjevod, email@example.com
little utility helps in multiple finding and replacing of string
data of values in Windows Registry. A friend of mine had to find
and change a couple of dozens or even more values in his registry
and it would take forever to do it manually, so I made this utility.
I thought someone else might find it useful so here it is.
use is very simple: check the root keys in which values should be
sought, enter the any part of the key value string that should
be matched (wildcards not supported), enter the string that should
replaced the matched part of the key value, click the Find
all button. While the utility searches for the matches, any keys
that cannot be opened are displayed in a separate window. During
the search, press ESC key to stop it. When search is complete, the
list of found values is displayed in the listboxes: first listbox
contains keys names, the second values and the third is a combobox
with the new values data that are to be set on found key values
YOU CAN MANUALLY EDIT NEW VALUE DATA by selecting it in the list
and editing in the edit box above. To remove a found value from
the list (not from the Registry), right-click on the list
of keys and select Remove from the values to be replaced. Finally
click Replace all to make the multiple replacement.
NOTE THAT IT WORKS ONLY ON STRING AND EXPANDED
STRING VALUES' DATATYPE!
