Metabase Explorer version 1.6

Microsoft's Metabase Explorer 1.6 (MBExplorer.exe), part of the IIS 6.0 Resource Kit), provides a graphical user interface (GUI) for viewing and for editing local and remote IIS metabase stores. You can also use Metabase Explorer to do the following:

  • Edit security settings for keys
  • Export and import keys and subkeys
  • Copy and paste keys and subkeys
  • Compare records

And: yes, it's free. You can download the IIS 6.0 resource kit here.
