Hi, I have 2 REG file exported from 2 different PCs, and I want to visually compare them.

There are too much entries to compare them with a text editor (one is 25MB), I need a tool that open the REG file as folder view like the normal regedit.
I can't find anything, all I can find are a "regedit clone" software or things like notepad++ / winmerge that display a text file.

There is something for that? Portable ones are preferred but doesn't matter if not. Thank you.

Powershell Compare-Object

Overall there are a number of ways to do such comparisons and present the results.

Python is another tool you can use:

However, be sure to do any experimenting in a test environment where if something goes wrong the original files are somewhere safe.

Then you can simply copy the files into the test environment and try again.

Very good chance that you will find some already written script or app that will meet your requirements. Or be easily modified in some manner if necessary.
