    Anyone out there running ERUNT for registry backup with SP2? I updated 4 machines last night and ERUNT won't function on any of them.

    Never mind, I was running an old version of ERUNT, 7/31/04 version works fine.

    Heh, I totally forgot about that program. I used to use it all the time. Haven't touched it in a while. Just export the registry now.

    dreamliner... not sure what you use to export the registry, butif it is regedit then you might want to read this......

    Note: The "Export registry" function in Regedit is USELESS (!) to make
    a complete backup of the registry. Neither does it export the whole
    registry (for example, no information from the "SECURITY" hive is
    saved), nor can the exported file be used later to replace the current
    registry with the old one. Instead, if you re-import the file, it is
    merged with the current registry, leaving you with an absolute mess of
    old and new entries.

    yeah, yeah, yeah, i know. I think i've just become confident that I've yet to lose a registry in XP (except for a ram corruption error, which borked the entire hdd anyway).
