I want to compare the settings in an old registry/settings file (.DAT) to a new one to see what's changed. It seems like this wouldn't be hard to do but I'm not sure how to do it. There are registry compare tools but the ones I saw use their own format.

(There's a free program called RegShot that uses Hive files. Any way to convert my DAT file to a Hive file in Win98 without actually making it the active system DAT file and then exporting it?)


p.s. Anyone who doesn't know what I'm talking about, just ignore me. :) Windows 98 stores a lot of its settings in files called SYSTEM.DAT and USER.DAT. I saved backup copies awhile ago and want to compare them to the new ones.
