Reg is a replacement for Microsoft's registry editor - adds enhancements like bookmarks, threaded search, direct navigation, etc. Supports Windows 9x/ME/2000/XP. Written in Borland C++Builder 4.
When I installed Reg under my XP 32 bit system and started it for the first time I received this error message: . 'FindChild failed in ExpandToBranch. This is a symptom that Reg has lost synchronization with the Registry./ Please restart the program. NT based versions of Windows implement registry security. If you are running one of these systems , please ensure that you are an administrator or have the necessary permission to avoid data loss'. . I restarted the program again and I received the same message which I had to close before it Reg could open, even though I was logged in as a user in the Administrator group. I decided not to risk damaging my registry by editing it with such an obviously inept application, so I uninstalled it. This application has not been updated since 2007, so I suppose the author lost interest in it even though it needed bug fixes. Another complete waste of time from Sourceforge.
While it may not support Unicode, since it is *not* an installer the issue the previous review was complaining about - writing to its folder - should not be an issue; there is no requirement for it to be in Program Files. What's more, since the settings are in its application folder, it becomes ideal for "portable" (USB drive) use.
Does not support Unicode. Writes its application settings to its installation folder, making it unsuitable for non-admin users and incompatible with Windows Vista, Server 2008 and Windows 7. In my computer, it starts with the following error message: FindChild failed in ExpandToBranch. This is a symptom that Reg has lost synchronization with the Registry. Please restart the program.
