cannot import registry change

September 1, 2011 at 03:07:34
Specs: Windows 7
I'm trying to import a registry change, provided as a small .reg file. It apparently works on XP, but when i try in W7 x64 i get the message "cannot import ..obd2baud.reg. the specified file is not a registry script, you can only import binary registry files from within the registry editor"

So i tried by opening regedit, but it gives a scary message like "the key will be imported at (whichever location cursor is on) and all existing subkeys will be deleted" so i selected 'no'

Any ideas how to get this imported?

Backup your registry first. Read your help files or use this.

Copy & paste this into notepad as a .reg. & save it on your desktop.
Then right click & select > Merge.

Hi, thanks for the reply, but you've missed the point. That is exactly what i am doing, and after selecting Merge, i get the message posted above.

"but you've missed the point"
Can't see how I missed the point when you did'nt say you clicked Merge, we can't assume anything.

Back to your first post, you have no spaces in between the lines, is that how you pasted it into notepad.?
