Registering files for Registry Backup
« on: March 07, 2016, 06:19:36 am »
- I have a hunch why Registry Backup crashes. I think RB overlooks to register a number of files with the "Regsvr32" command.

I was fiddling with the program REGEDIT and searched for the word "Tweaking" and "TweakingFormControl.ocx" and found one instance of that file. Then I used the "REGSVR32" command to register all the *.dll & *.ocx files in the folder where the folder where also the main *.exe was located for Registry Backup.
After that I came across A LOT OF instances of entries of e.g. "TweakingFormControl.ocx" in the registry.

To be fixed in the next version of RB ? Do these files need to be registered for RB to work ? (After all, these are *.ocx & *.dll files.).

The program has the file info in the manifest file and is part of the exe, so windows knows to uses he files in the program folder :-) So no need to register any files and is how I can have it be portable. :wink:
