VS 2008 Getting Registry Export/backup?

Nov 25, 2010

i'm writing an application, and i use registry to save my settings Don't criticized me, cos i know VB for some time now and its the best way to save settings, in my opinion.. But that's a different discussion..So i have saved settings in registry, and i want to add a button for user to save settings in *.reg file, but with correct sintax, that double-clicking on the reg file, the values ar restored in registry.This is RegEdit.exe backup. I need to be able to save like this with VB.Net:

Quote:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareExEdzy SoftBattery Status3.0]
"warning_show_cable_disconnected"=hex(b):01,00,00,00,00,00,00,00

[code].....

I searched the web for solution, but with no result..BTW i need to backup not one Value, but hole set of values in one Subkey..

Backup Registry - Keys / Values Displayed In ListView?

Nov 22, 2009

I have a program which will search the entire registry for a keyword and display all the matching keys/values in a listview. The user can then select the desired keys/values and delete them. Since this a program that deals with registry, I want to give the users a way to backup the registry before they do the delete operation. I would like to know what is the best approach for this.

3 questions here:
1- Should I backup the entire registry ?
2- Should I backup only the keys/values that the user has selected in the listview ?
3 - Can I have the sample code or appropriate URL's which describes this.

How To Set Privileges That Can Export / Import Registry

Nov 3, 2009

I would like to save let's say "HKLM/SOFTWARE" into file using API. First I open the key using RegOpenKeyEx. This works fine as I see that the ReturnPointer is different from zero and differs also when I switch from "SOFTWARE" to other subkey, therefore I assume no problem there.The problem comes when I want to save into the file. It creates only a blank file with return code of 1314. I have googled for this, but only found that this error means that application has no privilege to perform the action and I need to setup "SeRestorePrivilege" & "SeBackupPrivilege" property somehow. I haven't been able to find a good VB.NET example for this and as I am very weak with APIs I wasn't able to construct one of my own, therefore I would like to ask you for advice on this.Could you please help me on how to set the privileges so that I can export/import registry?

File I/O And Registry :: File Stream - Backup Program That Zips Files ?

Feb 9, 2009

I am writing a backup program that zips files. Using some sample code I have the following that creates a zip file. Problem is it does not get any subdirectories or files. Where am i going wrong?

Dim azFileNames() As String = Directory.GetFiles(SourceFolder)
Dim objCrc32 As New Crc32()
Dim zipStream As ZipOutputStream

[CODE]...

Alternativley, there is another component to the zipping dll that I could probably bypass the above altogether. It is: FZ.CreateZip(DestFile, SourceFolder, True, "", "") Where DestFile is (Output stream as system.io.stream). I'm trying to read all the files, directories, sub dir and files, etc from a specific location, let's say 'My Documents' into Destfile in which the FZ.CreateZip zips the file. FZ is FastZip which is from icsharpcode.net. They have c# examples, but that's greek to me. I'm trying to just learn VB!

File I/O And Registry :: Export Data To Text File?

Mar 17, 2009

I have a variable (double) that is constantly update in real time with data from an analog input. I would like to write this data as it comes in to a txt file. When I stop my acquisition of data from my analog input, I should have a txt file with all that data stored on my computer wherever I want it. The way I'd like that txt file to be laid out is like so:

Test Title: "This info comes from a string variable"
Operator Name: "This info comes from another string variable"
Test Date: "This info comes from yet another string variable"

[code].....

And so forth. As you can see I would also like to write the time for each data. This depends on my Timer interval which the user can set. The default is 50ms. So by default, y1 y2 y3 would be 0, 50, 100. How would I generate such a text file?

PS: I have five variables (X, Y, strTitle, strName, strDate)

VS 2008 A From To Backup To A Drive From My Computer

Aug 19, 2010

A form that will have a drop down menu that will display the drives available in My computer. I really only want this list to show USB drives, but I wouldn't know how to limit the list to only show certain drive letters. And then how you would know what Drive letter would appear.So they would select there backup location from the drop down. Then the next option would be to select from 3 or 4 different different options that would have have radio buttons next to the options that you could select. Would be like: Playlists, Schedule, Media Library. They could select all or one of these. Each of these would represent a folder, or File that would be copied to a folder on the selected USB drive. Then the final button would be labelled Backup, and upon pressing that depending on what options were selected files would start to copy.

Now I know how to do the final copy part kinda, what I don't know is how to do is select the destination on the fly from what was selected in the drop down menu. And then how to make sure that what is being copied is that that is selected from the check boxes.

"Backup Files" In VB 2008 EE - Application Suddenly Became Impossible To Access

Feb 27, 2009

A routinely used application suddenly became impossible to access, with and error code indicating that the "VB Backup\Backup" file cannot be found. When I click File Open, the projects display as always. I select the application, double click the .sln file--and nothing happens. When I try to access the .vb file in Solution Explorer, it says "Cannot find VB Backup\Backup Files."

What are the Backup Files, when are they created, and why would they suddenly be "gone?" Is there any way to rebuild the Backup Files? I used the application last night and it worked fine. Today it can't be opened because the Backup Files cannot be found.

I have backups of the application folders, but get the same error message. Cannot be opened because the Backup FIles cannot be found.

The email addresses that are used on the current computer. I just can't seem to find them on my computer.I am not sure if the registry is the only place to find it or if it stored on the web browser such as internet explorer or google chrome.

File I/O And Registry :: Reading Multiple Keys From The Registry?

Aug 27, 2008

I am writing an application that connects to a specific com port. This com port can change depending on how many physical ports are on the PC, and if other USB devices have installed com ports before this one.

I have the communication to the com port all working great, but I need to get the com port description not just the "COM#" which is all I currently get.

I found in the registry where the description is stored but am having trouble doing what I need.

In this key:

Code:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMControlSet001ControlClass{4D36E978-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

there is a varied number of sub keys. The are numbered 0000-NNNN depending on how many ports you have. Inside each of these keys, there are multiple values, although I am only interested in one or 2 of them.

My problem is, that I do not know how to get a list of the subkeys (the 0000-NNNN keys/folders) from the original key I posted. I have looked through a few registry tutorials, and I can view the default value in the listed key, but I could not find how to list the subkeys of the listed key.

Does anyone have any sample code they could share that shows how I can get a listing of subkeys, and then run through those subkeys checking for a specific value in one of the strings contained in the subkey?

I am using VB.net 2008 and Windows XP.
