Compare Registry Settings – Beyond Compare
I think that Compare Registry Settings is one of the most unknown features of Beyond Compare.
So if you are a Windows that fights with the Registry every now and then, this feature is for you.
Note it is in the Windows Pro Edition only: one more reason to buy a license (:
It has been there since Beyond Compare version 3.2, and for either side of the comparison supports:
- Your live registry
- The registry on a remote computer
- A .reg export file (locally or on an ftp server)
Use it to compare your registry against a backup, copy settings between PCs, and much more.
Note that comparing full registries can be slow, especially for remote registries as the registry transfer protocol of Windows is a bit chatty for the many small requests that Beyond Compare has to do.
The 2.5 minute introduction video is much better than the screenshot below, so go and watch it (:
