Windows 7: Can't find Registry hive

22 Sep 2011   #1

64bit SP1
Can't find Registry hive

Win7 Pro Administrator plus one User (member of Administrators only)

Logged in as User , ran several install shields to install couple of related programs and applications that fomr a Video analytics system on the PC .
Typically there will be a registry hive with several sub hives and keys but with the main group titled Citilog

I have installed this software on a 100+ XP's and it always produces this Registry hive in the same place HkeyLocalMachine /software/Citilog 100% of the time this hive/keys key could always be found using reg.edit from the User in which the programs were installed.

i recently installed the same program on 7 Win7Pro PC's that had 1 Admin, 2 users member of Administrators only .
I ran install shields from User1 on all 7 PC's . The HKeyLocalmachine/software/Citilog registry hive is nowhere in this Users registry or even in the Admin registry or User2 registry but all programs are working . I can do a Search registry using Citilog as search term and I will get several smaller keys form around other parts of the registry but I never see the main Registry "folder" Citilog .. any ideas on how i could find it ?

What exactly are you trying to do here? Maybe we can help you do it in a different way than you have been with XP since Windows 7 obviously does things a bit differently.

I see a funny registry entry - any way to find out what it is?
Hi all. I found a funny-looking registry entry earlier. Tho maleware and A/V scans reveal nothing, I am still concerned about this. If I open the binary value, I see gibberish. Is there any way to c&p this to make sense out of it? Any other ideas? Thanks in advance.
