v0.4 has been released long time ago, new software also has been released. Why there still no update for the regtweaks collection?

New regtweaks just doesn't appear very often anymore. There is a limit to what you can do/tweak with a particular software and with these it's getting close to that. Sure there are some more, minor and 3rd party program tweaks, that can be added but there probably isn't anything major left. People just don't feel the need to try finding any more tweaks, also many people have moved on to Vista. If the actual tweak file hasn't been updated, the one who updates it is maybe more interested in other things.

Is there anything special you would like to be done, either a tweak you need or you just want the file to be updated?

The command used in the supplied reg is missing a switch, uses a variable requiring a different data type and can be shortened.

Change this:

;--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------; Adds Device Manager to right click of My Computer[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\DevMgr]@="Device Manager"[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\DevMgr\command]@="mmc.exe %%SYSTEMDRIVE%%\\WINDOWS\\SYSTEM32\\devmgmt.msc";--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

To this:

;--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------; Adds Device Manager to right click of My Computer[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\Device Manager\command]@=hex(2):6d,00,6d,00,63,00,2e,00,65,00,78,00,65,00,20,00,2f,00,73,00,20,00,25,\  00,73,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,72,00,6f,00,6f,00,74,00,25,00,5c,00,\  73,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,33,00,32,00,5c,00,64,00,65,00,76,00,6d,\  00,67,00,6d,00,74,00,2e,00,6d,00,73,00,63,00,00,00;--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Or shorter still: this:

;--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------; Adds Device Manager to right click of My Computer[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\Device Manager\command]@="mmc -s devmgmt.msc";--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If it still doesn't work it's not the command that's at fault, it's your system.

THX for the help, but I still don't find the answer I'm looking for. I'm now trying to work on an XP for my computer and include the tweaks mentioned above. Because the text only says how to make it work on the computer, but I would like to put it into the install CD and install it silently with the WinXP install. Anybody confused?:D

Read all parts of the guide thoroughly until you get everything, not just about the tweaks/registry stuff.

The easiest way to add the reg-tweaks is to use cmdlines.txt.

I've already answered this question for you yadzil.

If you cannot be bothered reading through the handful of responses since your question was asked, why should we bother answering them. If you still cannot be bothered, then click on your name in the previous paragraph and it'll take you there.

^^^^ It says "durint" not "during"

Thanks for your effort. I for one appreciate it.

Hey just a heads up you seem to have miffed the file name on the readme. Shouldn't it be .html not xhtml??

I thinks it should be xhtml

The Extensible HyperText Markup Language, or XHTML, is a markup language that has the same depth of expression as HTML, but also conforms to XML syntax.

**** http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XHTML ****
Also the file does have xhtml stuff in it (e.g. the first line)



btw thanks for pointing out the typo!

I also found another few lil things - so here is the up-to-date version!

Hate to be a pain in the butt, here is a couple more issues.

Royale_Remixed.rar
Segoe.zip

BOTH files are corrupted just dlete the whole folder it really doesn't have any place in a reg tweaks collection any ways and will save alot of space.

And what do I read an xhtml file with? It reads in IE fine renamed as html.

I'm sorry but there's more chance of you winning the lotto.

The whole idea of these things is to choose only the tweaks you need and comment out those you don't. Only you know what you've applied and if you didn't do it in a test environment then you've only really got yourself to blame.

I know it sounds like I'm being harsh on you, but there really is no alternative, if you didn't create a system restore point, or back up your registry before you ran the tweaks then you'll have to start from scratch having learned a valuable lesson.
