Really great tool!
A "must have" application for advanced users, IT managers and anyone who works with Windows registry on regular basis. Available in the following languages: English, German, French, Chinese, Spanish and Nederlands !

Is there an English version of this program?

Not cool at all. While usability is somewhat better than Registry Editor, it has less registry support than Registry Editor.

Not exceptional, but very useful. It is all that one asks him : to be convivial.

The program is okay, but it times-out, forcing you ( if you want to keep using it ), into downloading an update.
Not good, seems like the programmer plans to make it shareware one day and of course all the free versions will time-out leaving you with the choice to buy it or do without something you've gotten used to.
It's good, but I shall keep looking for one that I can keep for longer than 4 weeks or so.

I. Language
English translation is incomplete, some labels are still in German.

II. GUI
-Bookmarks only reachable through a separate window that needs to be opened.
-Useless and too large icons in toolbar.
-There's no 'add to bookmarks' quickbutton (need to open bookmarks window for that too!).
-After jumping to an address using the explorer bar the treeview doesn't follow (well, it does jump to the vicinity, but the actual node is not even visible sometimes).

III. Search
-There's no option to stop search after first found occurence, only to 'find all'.
-Search for a well-hidden registry key took 52secs (normal regedit did it in 63s), not much of an improvement.
-To my great annoyance I found that the search process ALWAYS starts at HIGH priority, that is unacceptable! And there's no option/setting to change this behaviour. This alone was enough to convince me not to use this util.
-DWORD/binary data are not searchable.

IV. Others
-Snapshot compare results only in HTML or text format - why not a tree?
-Program exited after 30secs of freezing my PC with 'memory violation' error. This happened only once though.
-'Registry tracker' menu option shown but not implemented.

Only really positive feature of this program that's missing from other registry editors (I've seen RegCool, RegEdExt, RegEditor, RegHance, Registry Organizer, Registry Workshop) is that complete subtrees can be copied from one node to another.

Rating: 3 = this isn't anything special.

This is an excellent utility. It's got a great interface and provides all for editing the registry. On top of that, it's free! You couldn't ask for more.

The good point with this regedit alternative is the price, free. Unfortunately it is unstable and slow. In my opinion it also needs a major gui rewrite.

Not much to say except for it works as it claimed. It's wonderful !!! I had been looking for such program for a long time. I rate it with 5 stars !
