I've been given the task of modifying a batch file for the installation of our software that sets certain registry values. The modification has to do with differences in the registry between Windows XP, and Windows Vista/7. Apparently in the newer OS's, there is a "shadow registry" of some sort that contains registry data that may be out of sync with the main one? I can't find any information on this.
Could this possibly be referring to the transactional nature of the registry in Vista/7? Would a simple "commit" resolve this? If so, what is the syntax for that?
By "syntax", I am referring to the syntax of doing so within a batch file? i.e. I've added keys/values, what command will "commit" the transaction?
