    .reg file error

    Hi,I tried to change windows 10 font style by running a reg file-

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts]
    "Segoe UI (TrueType)"=""
    "Segoe UI Bold (TrueType)"=""
    "Segoe UI Bold Italic (TrueType)"=""
    "Segoe UI Italic (TrueType)"=""
    "Segoe UI Light (TrueType)"=""
    "Segoe UI Semibold (TrueType)"=""
    "Segoe UI Symbol (TrueType)"=""

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\FontSubstitutes]

    "Segoe UI"="Comic Sans MS"

    But the Windows got stuck at lock screen. However, it can run in safe mode. When i tried to run the .reg file again with default font style, I got "comd....dll missing". I've tried "sfc /scannow" but got "couldn't fix...". The system restore point that I created before running reg file is not working from recovery drive. Restoring from system image gives following error-

    .reg file error [​IMG]

    How can I fix this without losing my data?

    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,
  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)!
