When executed manually (or via Pycron) Registry Backup 1.6.7 almost always says that VSS is not running when according to the Windows Services panel it is and all it's prerequisites are too.

I say almost always because every now and then and with low frequency it finds VSS running and works correctly.

Help appreciated.

Everything Else / Selective restore
« on: March 25, 2013, 03:36:40 pm »
Is there a way to view a backup (perhaps stored in a mounted full system backup image) with a regedit type program so as to export from a backed up key to a .reg file as you can do with regedit?  A utility to convert a backup to a .reg file would probably do the trick because I'm pretty sure there are regedit type utilities that can operate on .reg files.

My system path was destroyed by something I installed and I didn't discover that for a few days during which the registry had evolved some.  I don't want to restore a whole registry backup, just retrieve "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment" entry from the backup to a .reg file for restoration to the regstry.

In many, if not most, cases a full registry restore to some past state is far too drastic.
