  • The free NirSoft "RegFromAp" for Win-32 and Win-64.
    • “RegFromApp monitors the Registry changes made by the application that you selected”.
    • “Works on Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, and Windows 8. Older versions of Windows are not supported. There is a separated version for x64 applications”.



SpyMe Tools


  • Matthias Withopf "TrackWinstall" for Win-32 and Win-64.
    • “Tracks the changes made to your system by program installers, including registry entries and file system alterations” → You need to “load” the software installation software by this tool.
    • On Win10-64, you must run it with VISTA compatibilty settings?!
    • It takes several seconds before you see the start screen of the program, even on a state-of-the-art computer with HDD ( not SDD ). Indeed it takes so long, that you might assume that the program was crashed and won`t work.
