I've been looking for some app, that will take my .reg or .rgu file (dump of WM registry), specially for OEMDrivers rgu, which is over 300kB large, delete duplicated stuff, sort it etc.
That's why I created this app.
What can it do:
- Grabs your input file, goes through it, takes together all registry nodes, when you have some key twice or more times, it gets overwritten so you're sure it isn't anywhere else after that
- Put it back to new output file
- Can remove "padding" zeroes at dwords, like you have "something"=dword:0000001 -- it removes the first zeros. They are not needed there and it is way readable IMHO (maybe not for everybody, so I made it as checkbox)
It made from OEMDrivers RGU of size 313kB new one with only 270kB! With human readable lines
With version 1.7 I fixed bug, that it got saved as ANSI rather UNICODE (thanks for others noticing that), thus having 50% of file size compared to supposed size. But Unicode is the right way to save that, sorry guys! (Platformrebuilder can use both, but OSBuilder maybe not? Well this is the better way).
Also, with 1.7, there's added option to run it from command line like rgucleaner.exe <sourcefile> <targetfile> and it _should_ close itself, but I'm not sure, I can't test it now. It was done as request
Version 1.8 update -- fixed "="="something" line in Mango beta for HD2. (thanks tslany for reporting). Plus now any problem with parsing line when it fails parsing even before checking if it is correct is now catched too rather crashing and reports the problematic line.
