|Description||HiveLoader is a powerful system tool that allows you to
load and unload registry hives as well as create new registry hives.
If you do not know what a registry hive is then this program is not
for you! Improper modification of your computer's registry could
easily break your computer. If you know what a registry hive is but you
are wondering why you would want to load a new registry hive, there are
several good reasons to load another registry hive. First, not all
registry hives are loaded into the active registry at startup, e.g. the
"Default User" hive is not loaded. Second, you may have multiple copies
of Windows installed on the same computer, this allows you to load
registry hives from the inactive copy of Windows. Lastly, you can load
registry hives from offline registry hives contained in virtual machines
or disk images. HiveLoader allows you to load these hives, view
and edit these hives, then unload them. All changes are committed
to the hive as you make them, you cannot unload the hive and discard the
changes you made.
|Use||To load a hive click "Load" and browse to the hive file, select the
hive root under which to load the new hive (either HKLM or HKU), and
enter the subkey name to load the hive as. Once a hive is loaded or
created, edit the hive using Regedit. To unload a hive simply select the
hive and click "Unload." To create a new hive click "Load" and enter the
path to where the new hive file will get saved. This must be a new
non-existent file. Enter the hive root and subkey name and click "Load."
You will be prompted about creating a new hive.
