RegTweaks 0.4.2

Recommended Posts

After I used the reg tweaks and made a restart, when the Windows tried to start on a black screen appears a window:

"The logon user interface dll custom msgina.dll file failed to load" In that windows the only button to use was restart.

I'm sure that from service reg tweaks isn't this error, because I have used then "services-black_viper.reg" for a while without any problem, but after AI have tried to use the others tweaks appear this error.

Thank you ! :)

Anyone knows which tweak provide this error ?

New regtweaks just doesn't appear very often anymore. There is a limit to what you can do/tweak with a particular software and with these it's getting close to that. Sure there are some more, minor and 3rd party program tweaks, that can be added but there probably isn't anything major left. People just don't feel the need to try finding any more tweaks, also many people have moved on to Vista. If the actual tweak file hasn't been updated, the one who updates it is maybe more interested in other things.

Is there anything special you would like to be done, either a tweak you need or you just want the file to be updated?

The command used in the supplied reg is missing a switch, uses a variable requiring a different data type and can be shortened.

Change this:
;--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


; Adds Device Manager to right click of My Computer


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\DevMgr]

@="Device Manager"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\DevMgr\command]

@="mmc.exe %%SYSTEMDRIVE%%\\WINDOWS\\SYSTEM32\\devmgmt.msc"

;--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

To this:
;--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


; Adds Device Manager to right click of My Computer


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\Device Manager\command]

@=hex(2):6d,00,6d,00,63,00,2e,00,65,00,78,00,65,00,20,00,2f,00,73,00,20,00,25,\

00,73,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,72,00,6f,00,6f,00,74,00,25,00,5c,00,\

73,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,33,00,32,00,5c,00,64,00,65,00,76,00,6d,\

00,67,00,6d,00,74,00,2e,00,6d,00,73,00,63,00,00,00

;--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Or shorter still: this:
;--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


; Adds Device Manager to right click of My Computer


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\shell\Device Manager\command]

@="mmc -s devmgmt.msc"

;--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If it still doesn't work it's not the command that's at fault, it's your system.

THX for the help, but I still don't find the answer I'm looking for. I'm now trying to work on an XP for my computer and include the tweaks mentioned above. Because the text only says how to make it work on the computer, but I would like to put it into the install CD and install it silently with the WinXP install. Anybody confused?:D

Read all parts of the guide thoroughly until you get everything, not just about the tweaks/registry stuff.

The easiest way to add the reg-tweaks is to use cmdlines.txt.
