[REBOL] Re: Installation puzzle

From: antonr:iinet:au at: 23-Dec-2003 13:56

For finding out the answer to these kinds of puzzles I recommend Sysinternals Regmon (a registry monitor). Just run regmon first, apply a filter *rebol*, then start rebol. You can sift through the output to see which registry keys are attempted to be accessed. Anyway, having done that, you can see a line such as: 40.87314030 rebol12131.exe:400 QueryValue HKCU\Software\Rebol\View\HOME SUCCESS "/d/anton/dev/rebol/view/" which tells you where rebol is installed. I first found this out by manually searching the registry for "rebol". Check out the rebol command line usage for the: --reinstall (+i) Force an install (View) option. Also, I think I just deleted the registry branch HKCU\Software\Rebol or HKCU\Software\Rebol\View to make windows forget everything about rebol. That's the same as uninstall. When rebol is run again, it will think it needs to install itself. As far as I know, "installing" basically just means modifying the registry. Anton.
