View Full Version : Registry differencing utility?

Can anybody recommend a utility that will tell me the differences in the registry before and after an installation? I need a similar tool for file differencing on the hard drive.

This functionality is offered by one of InstallShield applications called Repackager which is part of InstallShield AdminStudio product.

Essentially you would use the snapshot method in that application to get what you are looking for.

There are different versions of AdminStudio product and you can select based on your needs.

Upgrading to Admin Studio is a bit of over-kill to just do snap shot comparisons.

With all due respect, I'll have to pass.

In that case, try Regmon from SysInternals (http://www.sysinternals.com).

Should be just what the doctor ordered.

I use a utility from PC Magazine called InCtrl 5.
