    Hi guys,

    Can someone clarify that regedt32.exe is less powerfull (or read only) and regedit.exe is the full blown editor. :oops:

    Thanks again!
    I bet you guys can't wait until I pass !
    Hopefully it won't be too long!

    nope. fraid not. regedit is the original version that was released, regedit32 is the more recent (and more powerful) of the editors! regedit however, has a decent search function built into it, so a lot of techs apparently use regedit to search and locate the relevant area, and regedit32 to actually make the changes!

    both are full blown editors, they will both make changes to the registry!

    Hi guys,

    Thanks for the explanation and link.
    I seem to be getting in a fluster over conflicting things as I plan to take the exam :cry:
    I keep seeing different minimum hardware spec for installing operating systems etc...

    This question when I went over it again says that regedt32 is the only editing tool that you can view in "read only mode".

    Hi,
    Also remember that in regedt32.exe you an set permissions for registry values, where as regedit can not even tell you permissions
