    Modifying Registry with "reg" file


    I exported a HKCU key and saved it as a reg file.
    I now want to import it to another HDD.
    Prior to doing this I noticed the properties list in the Receiving system:
    1) Contains the same list of items
    BUT
    2) Are in a different order than the exported file.

    What to confirm whether this matters when I import the file --or -- if regedit will handle accordingly (update the correct key) ?

    Thanks
    David

    Hello David,

    It doesn't matter what order the values are listed in as long as they under the correct key. It will still get merged properly.

    Brink: Thanks for confirming.
    Assumed so, but best to double check then regret.
