Windows 10: Import or merge registry key not working Solved

    Import or merge registry key not working

    Hi, here is my problem.

    I exported a key (ieshims) to document folder. I made corrections using Notepad++ to some paths and saved it. I imported the key back and everything went fine.

    The problem is that when I go back to look at my corrections in the registry, nothing is updated. The old key is shown.

    The reason I exported/imported the key is that regedit doesn't allow me to make correction of a path on the left side of the key i.e. paths.

    Would anyone tell me what could be my problem?

    Hi Rich,
    Problem fixed.
    I was going to cut and paste the content of the key for posting it in the thread and discovered that in Block Note the data was not changed. I realized that the modifications was only displayed by Notepad++. So, I made the changes using Block note, and then deleted the old key, double click one the new one and eveything worked as expected.

    Many thanks,
