Windows 7: Registry export to .txt

30 Jan 2013   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit
Registry export to .txt


I need to export registry key to .txt file by using .bat file, but it's kinda complicated

Here is what I built

if exist %temp%version.txt del /q %temp%\version.txt

regedit /e %temp%\version.txt "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Version Vector"

start %temp%\version.txt
And it gives this output, what is correct

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Version Vector]
But I need to export just info from bolded content below:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer]
Is this possible, and how? I know how to export whole HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer key, but need only this, if it's somehow possible?

Thanks in advantage

Try this,
REG QUERY "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer" /v "Version" > %temp%\version.txt
It will overwrite the file if it already exist so the first line of your code will be redundant.
