Lightbulb [TOOL][29/Nov/10]Provxml<-->Reg Converter|XrMeLg v1.2.1.0[ONLINE]

XrMeLg is a tool to convert provxml files to reg files and reverse:



Prerequisites:Usage:
  • Really simple to use as a GUI:
    Code:
    Click the button [...] - Select file to convert - Click the relevant button [-->%new_file_type%] - Done!
  • It also works without even launching it. Just drag n' drop a file on the XrMeLg.exe and have it converted!
    <=>
    In cli you can have a file converted by typing :
    Code:
    XrMeLg.exe %file%
  • Command line usage to convert all provxml files at a given path to reg files:
    Code:
    XrMeLg.exe r:%path_to_look_for_provxml_files%
  • The application automatically does a backup of the processed file(s) inside a folder named "Files" in the directory where it is located.
Change Log:
  • 16/Nov/10 - Initial release
  • 16/Nov/10 - v.1.1.0.0
    1. Added drag n' drop support (Just drag n' drop a file on the EXE and have it converted)
    2. Removed unnecessary creation of *_mui_sz.reg
  • 19/Nov/10 - v.1.2.0.0
    1. Fixed reg-->provxml bug regarding registry key removal
  • 29/Nov/10 - v.1.2.1.0
    1. Fixed provxml --> reg bug (the reg file was not created in some cases)
If you test it please report any suggestions or any bugs found

Regards!

hey,

very nice tool, thx for sharing.

Now the BUT part or maybe just a hint..

I have converted regkeys to provxml where some registry keys should be removed. But your converter wont translate it to provxml. The reg entries will be just skipped.

Example: [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\Shell\StartInfo\Start\ Kamera.lnk]

Usually this would remove the key, but the converter skipps this part.

greetz,
greg

Thanks guys for testing this.
I made a typo in the string that the application searches and instead of
[-HKEY_...
I had
-[HKEY_...

Thank you Greg for noticing it

v.1.2.0.0 attached at 1st post is a revised version of the app to fix this issue.

Regards!

Hey,

When I use your tool in command line, it does not work...
I type XrMeLg.exe :rC:/BlaBlaBla/someFolder/
And this does not work...
Windows Phone proves that you can make an original and innovative OS without copying Apple. Something Google didn't manage to do.

Hi,
Sorry for the misunderstanding.
The switch is r: NOT :r.
I will correct the 1st post.

So if you type:
Code:
XrMeLg.exe r:C:\BlaBlaBla\someFolder
it will work but don't expect any console output!
Just check the Files folder and you should find the reg files there.

Regards!
