Import RegEdit File
The Import RegEdit File dialog box appears when you choose the Import RegEdit File... command on the context menu of a registry key, or File > Import > Registry File from the main menu. It allows you to preset various options for the registry keys and values that will be imported from the RegEdit file.
Dialog fields and options
This dialog box contains the following fields and options.
|Add||Select this option to add all registry keys and values from the RegEdit file to the project as new items. This may result in duplicate items if the project already contained like-named registry keys or values.|
|Replace||Select this option to replace any existing registry keys and values with the same name in the project with the information that is imported from the RegEdit file, and add any missing keys and values. (Other registry keys and values are left undisturbed.)|
|Skip||Select this option to skip any registry keys or values from the RegEdit file that already exist in the project. Any previously non-existing keys or values are added.|
|Registry view||Select the registry view for any newly created or replaced registry keys. The available options correspond to the Registry view option of the Registry Key attributes; see Registry Views for more information about registry views.|
