Part: VI Appendixes > Copying a Registry Key

Copying a Registry Key

In some cases, you might want to copy a Registry key or subkey in order to transfer that information to another computer. This process can be a simple and effective method of distributing corporate categories or entry types in Outlook. There are two main cautions to consider when copying a Registry key from one computer to another.

The first is that copying Registry keys between computers with different operating systems can sometimes fail. For example, if you try to copy a Registry key from Windows 2000 to Windows 98, it will likely fail. However, copying a Registry key from Windows 98 to Windows 2000 or Windows XP might work. Copying information between a computer with Windows XP and a computer with Windows 2000 should always succeed. If you're trying to copy a Registry key from one computer to another and it's failing, it might be due to differences in operating systems.
