NAME

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

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

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