regdiff man page

regdiff — Diff program for Windows registry files

Synopsis

regdiff [--help] [--backend=BACKEND] [--credentials=CREDENTIALS] [location]

Description

regdiff compares two Windows registry files key by key and value by value and generates a text file that contains the differences between the two files.

A file generated by regdiff can later be applied to a registry file by the regpatch utility.

regdiff and regpatch use the same file format as the regedit32.exe utility from Windows.

Options

--help
Show list of available options.
--backend BACKEND
Name of backend to load. Possible values are: creg, regf, dir and rpc. The default is dir.

This argument can be specified twice: once for the first registry file and once for the second.
--credentials=CREDENTIALS
Credentials to use, if any. Password should be separated from user name by a percent sign.

This argument can be specified twice: once for the first registry file and once for the second.
