    Can someone please explain the difference between "regedit"
    and "regedt32"(the second without the 'i'.)
    Both seem to bring the registry editor into operation.
    Regedit32 (with the 'i') creats an error message. XPpro system.

    In XP, Regedt32.exe just runs Regedit.exe

    why? Guest

    Ah , but look at the differences, In XP there aren't any. For other
    versions of Windows the 32 is the 32bit version of the app, there were
    also some command / menu changes., yest again save yourself and others some time ( a few
    seconds compared to waiting for an answer) and effort.

    The 1st hit for regedt32 may surprise you.

    filename / app on any version of Win.
