    Any way to recover data from registry (Pro SP2)

    In WIndows 9x you used to be able to run Regedit from the command prompt, tell it a specific registry file to read, and export the contents to a text file.
    Is there anything like this still available for Windows XP or 2000?

    Can't you just right click the bit you want to export and choose Export from the pop-up menu? You can choose the format to export it in from a drop down list, including a text file being one of the options.

    PS - I like the quote from Lewis.

    What I was talking about was some information in a backup copy of the registry found in c:windowsrepair, not the current registry.

    In Windows 9x you could have type something like "regedit -i c:windowsrepairfilename -o c:tempregarchive.txt and it would have read the old registry file, and exported what was in it to the specified text file.
