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:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareExEdzy SoftBattery Status3.0]
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..
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.
I am trying to Backup and after that will try to restore the registry on windows Vista and Windows 7 with vb.net 2008 using regedit throw shell, but it give me an error that the regedit.exe doesn't exist.
i m trying to prepare a small application for exporting or importing registry key(whole branch) using xml files i found example on code project but not working and also i found a component source commercial tool which worked perfect my question is how can we access all 8 types of data values from registry specially multiword value?
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?

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
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!
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"
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)
I Am trying to connect to the database(in Sql Server 2008) through my vb.net desktop application, perform a backup, and then allow the user to save the backup file to their computer Using Save Dialog box in vb.net 2008.
I have an application with a button on it which launches a backup program. I actually want to backup it each week. So when you launch the program, it looks if its time to backup. What code could i use, i don't really think i need to be saving things in text files, do i ?
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.
I have been able to export data from a query to the xlsx file..howerver those fields which are currency in my sql server 2005 table are currency are showing up in the spreadsheet as text. The column mappings are correct when I look at it in connection manager.
Also Is there also a way to create a new worksheet each time the export is run or does the file have to be already named?
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.
