hivexml - Convert Windows Registry binary "hive" into XML


 hivexml [-dk] hivefile > output.xml


This program converts a single Windows Registry binary "hive" file into a self-describing XML format.



Enable lots of debug messages. If you find a Registry file that this program cannot parse, please enable this option and post the complete output and the Registry file in your bug report.


Keep going even if we find errors in the Registry file. This skips over any parts of the Registry that we cannot read.
