hivexget - Get subkey from a Windows Registry binary "hive" file


hivexget hivefile '\Path\To\SubKey'

hivexget hivefile '\Path\To\SubKey' name


This is a low-level tool. For a more convenient way to navigate the Windows Registry in
Windows virtual machines, see virt-win-reg(1). For proper regedit formatting, use


This program navigates through a Windows Registry binary "hive" file and extracts either
all the (key, value) data pairs stored in that subkey or just the single named data item.

In the first form:

hivexget hivefile '\Path\To\SubKey'

"hivefile" is some Windows Registry binary hive, and "\Path\To\Subkey" is a path within
that hive. NB the path is relative to the top of this hive, and is not the full path as
you would use in Windows (eg. "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM" is not a valid path).

If the subkey exists, then the output lists all data pairs under this subkey, in a format
similar to "regedit" in Windows.

In the second form:

hivexget hivefile '\Path\To\SubKey' name

"hivefile" and path are as above. "name" is the name of the value of interest (use "@"
for the default value).

The corresponding data item is printed "raw" (ie. no processing or escaping) except:

1. If it's a string we will convert it from Windows UTF-16 to UTF-8, if this conversion
is possible. The string is printed with a single trailing newline.

2. If it's a multiple-string value, each string is printed on a separate line.

3. If it's a numeric value, it is printed as a decimal number.
