Recent questions tagged windows-registry

The registry was created as a central location to store configuration for COM components and all application settings in a standardised form. Reading from and writing to the registry is much quicker than for a .ini file as it doesn't have to be parsed. It can also store structured data rather than just text as is the case for .ini files. However, having a centralised database means that it's harder to backup and restore individual applications.
