Registry


If a text string is too long, when you try to import it into the Registry it inserts a carriage return in the middle. If this happens it will not get added to the Registry.
You can drag the file into Notepad and remove the carriage return manually ??


HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT - Interface, OLE features
HKEY_CURRENT_USER - Data from the user's .dat file
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE - System specific settings
HKEY_USERS - Settings about all the users on the system.
HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG - Hardware information


When is the Registry Updated ?

The Registry is only read once when the application starts up and once when the application is closed.
If the application crashes the Registry will not be updated and therefore any settings that have been changed will not be saved.
