Regshot advanced is a tool to monitor and log filesystem and registry changes for example done by an installer. Its main purpose is to detect things modified or added by tools running on windows systems.
Its use is very simple: do the first shot before e.g. an installer runs, do the second shot directly after installation, and last, compare the shots.
BUT Regshot advanced got a plethora of configuration possibilities and produces log files in various formats:
- Plain TXT files
- HTML files
- CMD files (only for undoing the changes)
- Easy parsable text files called "UNL"
- REG files undoing or repeating the registry changes
- NSIS installer and uninstaller files, directly usable by the appropriate compiler (see great open source installer nsis)
- Innosetup installer and uninstaller files, directly usable by the appropriate compiler (see great open source installer innosetup)
Installation and usage of Regshot advanced
Installation and usage of Regshot advanced is fairly easy: just compile (or use the assets) and start the program by double clicking its exe file. Regshot advanced doesn't create any own registry data or file outside its directory (except for the chosen log files of course).
For more details about its configuration, have a look at the wiki. I will update the wiki during the next weeks (I hope...).
