Hi,

I found quite a few severe bugs in the Registry plugin. First I tried to find a support page but since the read.me says that the plugin's homepage is on totalcmd.net, there is no real support for this plugin (besides the e-mail address mentioned in the read.me). And I think that a public bug report in this forum is better anyways. That's why I chose to write this thread.

First, did I miss someplace to look for support?

Now, for the bugs I found:

  • The latest version 4.9 (at the time of writing this post) doesn't work at all on Windows 2000. Trying to configure it using TC Plugins Manager reveals that the plugin is trying to load the function DecodePointer() of kernel32.dll but there is no function with that name on Win2k's kernel32.dll, even with the latest patches applied (including Update Rollup 1).

    • Note: Version 4.8 works on Win2k but only in a limited manner because the plugin's own Search doesn't work as it doesn't open at all. The last version fully working on Win2k is 4.4 (took me a few hours to figure this out).

  • Version 4.9 with "Access 64 Bit registry" activated doesn't work correctly on WinXP x64. It always shows the 64 Bit branch even in the Wow6432Node key. Besides it works in an infinite loop using this key. See this picture for a more detailed explanation and comparison.

    • Note: The feature does work correctly on Win7 x64.

Test system: TC 7.56a on Win2k SP4 UR1, XP x64 SP2, Win7 x64 RTM.

Can anybody confirm these bugs? Does the plugin's author read this forum or do I have to send him an e-mail?

Kind regards
Dalai

Thanks. Though I didn't want to register in another forum, it will probably be better to do it. I hope that my English is understandable...

Regards

Thanks, but I've linked this topic already (see page 15) and CaptainFlint was so kind to translate my English to Russian.

Reality is that I can test on Win7 x32 and x64 (since last month) only. Re issue with Win2k - are you sure you are using original unpacked version? DecodePointer is not called explicitly from the code... I will check import table later.
I do have plans to do the testing on VMs but do not have enough time for this atm.

It's used by CRT of Visual Studio 2010, so if you wish to keep compatibility with Win2000 and WinXP prior to SP2 you need to build it in VS2008. (There are alternative ways though like building with hacked CRT and then patching the binary to fix the Required OS version field.)

Yes, I'm sure. I'm keeping an archive of all plugins (and all versions) I use(d).

But for the record, here are the MD5 checksums of the files I used:
Version 4.9:
Code:
af1271501923d83310959cf07e9776b6 *registry.wfx

Version 4.8:
Code:
4c09fa3f08c85d660f06aeeeef5ba68b *registry.wfx

Version 4.4:
Code:
ee9ef14a82a895d93140888cf8e66bd3 *registry.wfx

Is there a special thread for this plugin? Or better to create a new one? I only want to add a few lines to German translation.

@Peter: I don't mind if you post your corrections/additions in this thread. Unfortunately there has not been any further reaction to the problems I stated above, neither here in this thread nor in the Russion thread linked above Crying or Very sad. So it may take quite a long time to merge your additions to the plugin.

Regards
Dalai

You can either post it here or to the email from Options window. New version should be ready soon (hopefully).
