    Question about fixing a .reg file.


    First and foremost thanks to Brink for the .reg files that i use.

    I am using the power menu cascade .reg file that puts a power menu on the right click menu of the desktop. I seen that there is also one for the UEFI settings on the same right click menu. What i wanted to do and i tried it but didn't work was to put the UEFI settings in that same cascade menu. It instead put it in the the middle of the context menu. Is there a way to do this for neatness?

    Here is the entries i am trying to use all i did was copy the lines from one reg file to the other. And followed the format of the power menu cascade entries.

    Windows 10 2004 Build 19041.450

  2. Adapting .REG Files.

    Thanks KeithM for the suggestions.

    I will have a go at that later!

    I assume that I can add the completed working menu to ALL 7 sections that you have listed to make it available wherever I am in the OS, is that correct please?

    Thanks in advance.

  3. Windows 10 regedit cannot import a reg file

    This is an old question but see that the original poster never replied to your question. I have the same problem.

    Windows 10, 64 bit, reg file is a ".reg" extension. The reg file was an export from the notepad registry item and am trying to force settings on my end users with the reg-hack when they login. I get the same error as the gentleman above and am not sure how
    to solve it. I have done reg hacks for many years with Win98-Win7 without any issues.

    I have also opened the reg hack up with notepad and re-saved so the file isn't corrupted. I am also admin for our entire ms network which I thought might be the problem. I also added a command line switch "/reg:64" which one poster suggested would solve
    it but while the error goes away and it appears to run, nothing in the registry actually changes.

    Thanks in advance if you're still listening (I hope)!

    Question about fixing a .reg file.

    Import reg file in a batch file

    I suggest that, as a first step, you edit the batch file so it captures the errorlevel after the reg import command.

    - Something simple such asecho The reg import command result is - %ErrorLevel% will do as long as long as you put it in as the line straight after the reg import command and then put aPause command in as the next line [before restarting explorer] so you can have a look.

    - Checking the errorlevel will tell you whether reg import thinks it has completed correctly or not.
    - While you are checking the errorlevel you could also go to the Registry key [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Search] to see what has happened to it [make sure you Refresh the view if you were already at that key beforehand]



    I have never used reg import but I know there are optional arguments for 32/64 bit items so perhaps you might investigate them
    - enter reg import /? >RegImport.txt in a command prompt to save the Help guidance that mentions these switches.
    - I do not think these switches are relevant but I have never investigated their use properly.
    - For all I know, the problem might be as simple as reg import not being able to handle the comment lines, such as ; Cartella utente, properly

    Best of luck,
    Denis
