    I just now noticed thread starter mentioning RegEdit did the exporting. I have no answer why RegEdit can't import its own export.

    The original keys were generated by Repetier. I have xfered these keys between my computers in the past without an issue. I don't believe the program changed RE this. The file I uploaded was a reg file that regedit created. Viewing the reg file with notepad showed the LF characters.
    Maybe it is something with notepad. I will redo it using ultraedit.

    OK, I just exported the Repetier key with all the sub-keys. I then deleted one subkey in the registry and imported the reg file without opening it. All the gcode entries except the gcodeScript#name are missing from the subkey that I deleted. The rest of the entries are there.

    I have used reg, Kyhi has fixed, and all entries imported just fine. Try to use bat instead.

    Attachment 121731 here is your corrected reg file..

    I believe he had WORDWRAP enabled in notepad

    or now after reading the ( last page )which I failed to read..
    It may of been the program he used did not like spaces / or semi-colons

    Just a little FYI:
    Qoutes " " are wrapped around commands that have spaces...
    Otherwise the command breaks at the space..

    Cmd C:\New Folder > is seen as C:\New
    Cmd "C:\New Folder" > is seen a C:\New Folder

    Thus the give away hint in the first post = quotes all over the place
    Thus being read as several single lines of unknown code
    rather than a single line of code

    thx, but if I export the key with regedit, delete the key in the registry, then clk the .reg file and import it, I have changed nothing in the .reg file that regedit (a MS program) created. Based on what I saw in notepad previously, I figured there was a problem with those lines, but MS created them, so who am I to question MS...........
    So this obviously is a newly created bug from GOD MS, since sometime in the past it worked fine.
