Adding Persistent Custom Registry keys to your USB
« on: September 03, 2018, 07:36:26 pm »
A feature is included to add custom registry keys during boot. 

Export registry keys to .REG files, then place the .REG files in the Y:\System\Registry folder.  .REG files placed in this folder will merge with the system registry during the next boot. 

If you do not know how to export registry keys, below are some brief instructions that may be helpful, although it is best to have some experience with the registry if you are trying to capture keys from an installer...

Exporting Keys from an installer:  This is useful when installing non-portable programs to the Y:\Programs folder.  Use RegShot2 to take (Snapshot 1) before you install the program, and (Snapshot 2) after you install the program.  A folder will be created on your desktop with a .REG file that recorded the newly added keys during the install.  Name the .REG file something unique and add it to the Y:\System\Registry folder to re-add these keys persistently to future boots...

(The .REG files produced by RegShot2 are not perfect, there are usually extra unnecessary keys included and in some cases you will need to remove the excess keys - This will take some practice)
