    Regdrop/RegSverHelper - recommended for Windows 10?


    I'm copying over some portable Windows 10 programs to my new Windows 10 64-bit PC, and I've come across 2 registry helpers and I'm wondering if they are still useful or if they still work for Windows 10. They are:

    Regdrop
    RegSverHelper

    Both are supposed to be an easy way to register or de-register ddl files.

    "RegDrop is a component registration utility that allows you to simply drag and drop a component on it and RegDrop will register or unregister the component for you. This process is much easier than having to locate the REGSVR32 console application to register components. And more important, RegDrop gives real error messages as opposed to cryptic numeric result codes. This is very helpful in debugging self-registration problems in the files you are installing."

    "RegSvrHelper is a very tiny utility. I wrote it out of frustration with having to use the command line for
    registering DLLs thru RegSvr32. RegSvrHelper helps you to register/Un-register DLLs etc. It does not try to replace the RegSvr32 utility that comes with Windows, but simply 'helps' in using it by providing a file open dialog box to locate the DLL you want to register or un-register. Once you locate your DLL, you can click on the Register or Un-Register button to call RegSvr32 to do the actual registration on un-registration."


    Being 64-bit now I'm wondering if these would cause issues if I used them or if they should still be ok? When I run RegSvrHelper it runs and a note says "[regsvr32 must be in your path for this to work - it usually is.]"

    You don't need either, junk.

    Is there any particular reason it's "junk"? I've used them on Windows 7 so I know in fact they worked for me. The question was will they work correctly on Windows 10 or have things changed in Windows 10 that will cause issues if I use these? And why are they considered junk? Surely it's easier to just drop a dll and have it automatically get registered than using a command line?

    And what about this statement - "egDrop gives real error messages as opposed to cryptic numeric result codes. This is very helpful in debugging self-registration problems in the files you are installing."?
