    You mean 'broken' lines when posting reg files, I gather... :D

    It's a true epidemic at boards everywhere, I'm beginning to think.

    There is a problem with this Board and registry files. It seemed to be fine before the upgrade.
    I exported a reg key to Notepad and copied it here.
    Recopied back to Notepad.
    Removed same key from Registry. Imported the key from the copy I pasted from here.
    It didn't enter correctly.

    It used to be that when I copied a reg file, even if the lines were curtailed, when I pasted back into Notepad, everything was back as it had been and the reg file worked.

    That's no longer the case. I copied a working reg file into the post. Recopied it and it was changed.

    But I think even before the change the lines were being curtailed already, If I remember correctly.
    And when copying them back to Notepad I think they remained curtailed.

    Let me try and find an example somewhere

    Tony,
    Thanks. I may need to post a reg fix later for someone and am not going to do so if this doesn't work.

    EDIT:
    I went back to a couple of old posts and you are right. This software changes the Format. That will pose a problem. Guess I'll have to attach them as text files. Then have the poster Download and change the extension to reg I'm glad that option is available.

    Mo,

    take a look at this:

    REGEDIT4

    [HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel]
    "ConnectionSettings"=dword:00000001


    It works!

    How come?? :rolleyes:

    Tony,

    Got me! I copied and pasted that into Notepad and it was changed. I htink I'll use the attachment option. I can post the fixes as example with warnings not to copy from the post.

    No, doesn't work either.

    If I should have a reg file to post, I'll follow your advice.

    Cheers,

    I did that a couple of days ago, actually. Posted one attached as a *.txt file, and asking people to rename it to *.reg.
