  • Tried to ContentBug the following, but got "An error has occurred". Since someone might appreciate the piece of information, I post it here instead.

    It's the user provided content on the topic "Registry Key Security and Access Rights", (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms724878(VS.85).aspx) claiming the following on Regedt32:

    Note that Regedt32.exe is now extinct -- it has been replaced with regedit.exe only, as of Windows XP. The regedit shipped with windows XP combines the power of the older regedt32 and regedit applications into a single program.

    Not entirely true. This was changed somewhere after XP SP2 I reckon, because prior to an update, RegEdt32 was indeed needed to access the ACL interface regedit didn't incorporate.
