I seems to have a bug when importing some REG files.
The problem is that when I try to import a REG file which changes the default value to DWORD, the import won’t work… Registry say that it has been imported, but actually default isn’t changed at all… I’m using Win98 SE BTW.
To test what happened:
1.) Open IE6
2.) Click Tools, Internet Options
4.) Type in regedit.bug, then click block.
5.) Click OK twice to exit Internet options.
6.) Start Registry Editor (regedit.exe) by clicking start, run.
7.) Make your self to this registry key:
8.) Click on regedit.bug folder, then click Registry, Export registry file.
9.) Save the file to desktop called BugTest.reg
10.) Delete the key regedit.bug located in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\P3P\History
11.) Merge back the registry file (BugTest.reg), and click F5 on registry editor to refresh the view.
12.) The BUG appears that the DWORDED default is gone…
I notice that some 3rd party editor can import this file correctly…
I tried using Registry Pro (Mcafee) and it seems that the import is fine…
Anybody have any suggestions?
