Tom’s Reg File Viewer Professional is a software that can render Registry-Files (*.REG) and Registry-Hives (*.DAT, *.HIV, *.LOG, *.LOG1, *.LOG2. *.SAM, *.SAV, or any other suitable extension) under a common interface.
Its surface is inspired by the (well known) Windows Registry Editor. It is more than a simple Viewer, but quite not an Editor. So, it will neither change the files itself or the registry of your computer. Security settings in registry hives can be viewed als well. Changing or editing of security settings is not possible. Only registry hives do contain security settings like windows registry keys.
It provides a history list, a favorites list, and a search result list. Searching files for text pattern using regular expressions via PCRE or wildcards (“*” and “?”) are also implemented. Tom’s RegFileViewer Professional does even more:
– it converts Registry-Files from (*.REG) to Registry-Hives (*.DAT, *,HIV, *.LOG, *.LOG1, *.LOG2, *.SAM, *.SAV, *).
– it converts Registry-Hives (*.DAT, *,HIV, *.LOG, *.LOG1, *.LOG2, *.SAM, *.SAV, *) to Registry-Files (*.REG).
– it shows the appropriate Dialogs for Registry-Hives Security Options (DACL, SACL, Group, User) on every key.
– it allows to select registry keys and/or branches via checkboxes and save them in a new Registry-File (*.REG) or in a new Registry-Hive (*.DAT, *.HIV, *.LOG, *.LOG1, *.LOG2, *.SAM, *.SAV, *) for further working. You can enable or disable these checkboxes at any time you want.
There is a free 15-Days-Demo available right here: The only limitations concern the maximum file size of 40 MB for displaying/converting Registry Files or Registry Hives.
