Copying from the registry is done via the REG COPY command. Note that in order to copy values from the registry, you need to have sufficient privileges on the system to perform this operation on both the source location and the destination location.
REG COPY [\\SourceMachine\][ROOT\]RegKey [\\DestMachine\][ROOT\]RegKey
@echo off REG COPY HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Console HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Console\Test REG QUERY HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Console\Test
In the above example, the first part is to copy the contents from the location HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Console into the location HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Console\Test on the same machine. The second command is used to query the new location to check if all the values were copied properly.
Following is the output of the above program. The first line of the output shows that the ‘Copy’ functionality was successful and the second output shows the values in our copied location.
The operation completed successfully.
