What is it?

kregedit was a KDE utility for viewing native Windows registry files that I wrote based on Richard Sharpe's editreg tool. It is similar to the regedt32 utility that can be found on most Windows platforms. Only the NT registry format (NT4/2000/XP) is supported.

This version of KRegEdit is now obsolete. Instead, I have been working on a registry library, as part of Samba 4. A GTK+ frontend to this library exists, and a KDE frontend is planned.

There are some screenshots of the GTK+ registry editor at my homepage.

I do not plan to make any updates to the version of KRegEdit that is available seperately here. This page is here merely for historical interest.
