I missed this whole thread since I wasn't at work today.  Damn.  I have
some thoughts on regedit and regedt32.  I'm really angered that there is
no separate regedit and regedt32 in XP anymore.  I mean, I usually used
regedit in 2000 unless I needed the regedt32 functionality.  But, I
would also use regedt32 whenever I had to connect to two registries at
the same time and do some comparing of the two.  Now in XP since there
is only one registry editor, it's a real PITA to look at two registry
locations at the same time.  I find myself terminal servicing into
servers just to use their regedits whenever I need to look at two places
at once.  I hate that.  I'm pretty damn disappointed, and I wish I could
launch more than one instance of regedit or regedt32.  I don't know why
those programs don't allow multiple instances.  I mean, it's not like
they lock the registry while they're open or anything like that.  It
doesn't make sense.  Maybe someone knows of a way...
