I have files on my Win 2k machine that I Exported Registry. With my new
XP machine, I would like to import them. How does the Registry know
where to put them (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, HKEY_USERS, etc.)?

Thanks.

The full key name is stored in the exported reg file.

Thanks. I tried another text editor, which did not work. Good to know that notepad works.
