TweakingRegistryBackup (portable)
« on: June 20, 2021, 01:55:56 AM »
Hi,
With the last version (4.0.0.0) the switch -silent does not work anymore (W10, 1803). I have also tried /silent, but no joy! Quid??
Thanks, Paul, Brussels, Belgium

I've sent him an email but as he's extremely busy, I'm not sure if/when I'll get a reply but will let you know when I do.

I'm 8hrs ahead of him here in the UK.

This is the reply I've received from Shane.

Can you answer his question -

I didn't change the code for it, and it still runs on a schedule fine. Is he running pure silent mode or just on a schedule? I haven't used or touched full silent mode in a long time so i will test and see.

Thanks for this quick answer though there is no emergency....
English is not my mother tongue, so please forgive the mistakes!
I have a small .bat file, starting with Windows, with the line:
TweakingRegistryBackup.exe -silent  >> RegistryBackup 4.0.0  did not start during Win logon.
If I try that command in a Run command window [with the version 4.0] >failure
If I try with version 3503 : it is ok
I did not try on a schedule.

Hi,
I have understood...
In the advanced settings there is an option: 'only do 1 autobackup per day'. If I untick it, it works! If it is 'on', the soft does not start with the command :"TweakingRegistryBackup.exe /silent". But if it is 'on' and if I launch the program normally (double click  on .exe) and then I click 'Backup Now' > the tool starts normally!
I don't think there is anything to do with whether or not I have made an (auto) backup before.
I'll restart the PC tomorrow, with the version 4.0, after having unticked 'only do 1 autobackup per day'. The .bat should launch the line 'TweakingRegistryBackup.exe -silent' and I think it will be good.
By the way:  are the backups made by version 3.5.0.3  fully compatible with those made by version 4.00 ?
Thanks, Paul Brussels Belgium
nb: I use the portable version

There was a bug with 3.5.3 in that you couldn't fully restore from them which is why Shane produced v4.0 but given how much the registry would have changed from when you backed up using 3.5.3 then I don't think it would be advisable to restore with an old back up.

I've had another reply from Shane -

Well just tried and it works fine. I have the checkbox set to only do 1 backup a day, so I removed todays backup and ran this command in a bat file

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Tweaking.com\Registry Backup\TweakingRegistryBackup.exe" -silent

And it made the backup fine. Under advanced settings in the program there is a checkbox to only do one a day, if that is set and he runs the silent command and there is already a backup for today it wont create a new one.
