    The scenario is as follows:

    A Win7 system has some problems and could NOT be booted itself.

    So I took an additional bootable repair or LiveSystem CD and start the computer with it.

    I have now a running WinOS and another dead Win7 e,g, on a partition C: on a hard disc.

    Now I want to apply an existing *.reg Script into the registry of the dead system (=NOT the currently running system.

    Can I do this somehow?

    Is there e.g. a command

    regedit myscript.reg -writetowin C:\Windows

    whch writes the *,reg file to the Registry of the Win7 system which it find on partition C: in folder "Windows"?

    Maybe I can address the target registry file directly

    regedit myscript.reg -writeregistrydirect C:\windows\ntxxxxxxx.dat

    In which file(s) is the Registry stored?

    Second question: Can I at least read from such an external dead Registry?
