Does anyone have a vb script that will search the registry for a specified value? Looking for references to an old server (ex. Serverxyz) and I would like to generate a report with all the occurrances of this value.
Just use the output of the built in reg command.
reg query HKLM /s /v Serverzyz
Thanks Dan! On my Windows 7 box it appears I can search for all references to "serverxyz" by issuing the following:
reg query HKLM /s /f Serverxyz
The issue is that on my Windows XP box it doesn't recognize the /f parameter.
download regfind its an old tool but it has a query option and does work with XP.. Do a google search for it think its an MS tool
reg query HKLM /s | FIND "Serverxyz"
You might have to tweak the search a bit...
