Search registry problem

Post by whitefly »

When I do a registry search, I enter the search for characters, then start search. I would like to be able to see hilighted and coloured my search item within the string of characters. Also for some returned found items I'm unable to find the search term.
for example take this direct from my computer:

search for lc6
the second item the one starting L&bj!e=wV... does NOT contain the search term.

Could you please save to the reg-file and send to me at konstantin@chemtable.com the below registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer\UserData\S-1-5-18\Products\E322FE11BCCCCCB419D8AEE495DF50FE\Features

This is necessary to reproduce the problem.

I have sent you the reg file via email attachment. I note that the search for string is there but does not show up in Reg Organiser's search results - possibly as the return string is so long!

I've got the file from you, thanks. In fact, the substring "lc6" is present in that value (closer to the end). Ther reason that you don't see it in the search result is that the value data is too long and was truncated when listing in the results table.
