Command Line Options for rr.exe and rr64.exe


Note: this information applies to Registrar Registry Manager (rr.exe) only. There is a different utility called Registrar Command Line Edition (rrc.exe) which comes with an extensive set of command line options.

Registrar Registry Manager offers several command line options that give you control of the program without the need of user operations. Command line options are specified when starting up the program from the Windows shell, for instance at a Run or Command Line prompt.

Here's a summary of the available command line options that Registrar supports with their descriptions:


"registry key"
Automatically jump to a certain registry key on the local machine at startup. Also abbreviated rootkeys are allowed. For example, if you type at the command line
rr.exe HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVerson
then that key will be opened on startup. If the registry key consists of spaces then the registry key should be put between quotes.


"filename"
Automatically start editing the specified file at startup. For example, if you type at the command line rr.exe "d:\regfile.reg" then the specified file will be opened on startup. If the filename consists of spaces then the registry key should be put between quotes.


/reset
Restart Registrar and restore all options to their default settings.


/search
With this option, the search dialog will be presented on startup instead of the main registry editing window.


/backup
Perform an automated backup. If the option /backupdir= is omitted then the backup will be saved to the default registry backup path which is relative to the installation path of Registrar Registry Manager.


/restore
Automatically restore a previously saved backup and reboot. If parameter/backupdir= is omitted then the latest available backup is assumed. Warning: use with caution.


/backupdir=x:\pathname
Only valid in combination with /backup or /restore.
Specifies a specific directory path to backup to or to restore from. 
For example rr.exe /backup /backupdir=c:\regbackup will ensure the backup gets saved to the specified directory.


/minimized
Only valid in combination with /backup or /restore.
When this parameter is specified, no dialog will come up if an automated backup or restore takes place.


/noprompts
Only valid in combination with /backup or /restore.
When this parameter is specified, no message dialogs will come up if an automated backup or restore takes place, not even if an error occurs or if it fails.


Note that we offer an advanced command line registry manager called Registrar Command Line Edition. It is included in the professional version.
