Solution to monitor and record added Files and registry entries from d

4 posts in this topic

I am looking for a program solution that will monitor my systems registry and folders as a application installs its files, drivers, and registry entries.

The reason; i am currently testing out various configurations of Creative Lab based drivers and other DDS, DTS, CMSS-3D based modules on both windows vista SP1 X64, and windows 7 beta X64, and would like to avoid having to formatting/installing the OS's multiple times as i work on modifying the driver sets to suit my needs. I would like to build a file and registry entree listing based on the default drivers and added modules so i can 100% clear the computer of all items that are copied over during the driver install even after i uninstall said applications.

If you actually want to monitor files and registry you could use InstallRite.

But you might want to consider disk imaging software instead, quicker and cleaner than uninstalling stuff.

Thanks for the Installwatch suggestion, to bad windows does not come with sort of thing by default....

Not sure if it catches every thing but seems fairly robust thus far.

I would unpack the driver installers and study the inf files; sounds like your going to be doing that later anyway.

Also might want to check out these free tools: UniExtract, Orca, Process Monitor, Sandboxie
