    A REGISTRY mystery - reg file doesn't import properly


    I have imported hundreds of reg files into every windows build since 95, now I run into another W10 mystery.
    I have a complete export of the key REPETIER. When I import it some REG_SZ entries do not import.

    This is an unmodified export of a sub-key under Repetier.
    reg mystery.reg

    The items that do not import are in bold:

    Can someone explain why???????????
    Note: viewing the reg file in Notepad, the extra LF appears as an extra space at the end of the line. I did not add it.

    Are you trying to import the key while logged in with a standard windows account? You would need to log in as a user who is apart of the local admin or run script as admin to import the key.

    Replendence has a free version of Registrar Registry Manager which has an import/export [within its secondary panel]; you might have to try with that tool.

    I am THE admin
    That file was a direct export from REGEDIT. Are you saying REGEDIT can't properly export registry keys??
    Does MS know this??

    maybe it is just your interpretation, sorry - just saying there is no other admin here, and again I am disappointed in MS, not being able to control their own sw. How do I export keys from the registry with the registry's own sw and not get what I am suppose to, to be able to import back into a registry -- such that I must find a 3rd party solution?
    Just absurd, wouldn't you say???

    All those LF didn't look right to me either, but it is MS sw..........

    It looks like something scrambled the code, so it be could read, but notepad does not do that, only wordpad. Can you post the screenshot, what it looks like in the registry? Maybe some special characters are used?

    I missed it, what program was used to type the REG file contents? I can't remember metapad or notepad, such need to have have their word-wrap turned off, adding unseen characters into its TXT or REG creation. Wordpad? -- I have not used such, I do not know if Wordpad adds unseen characters or re-formats the writings within its TXT or REG creations. I don't believe anyone uses MS Word for such creations.
