Sometimes programs aren’t used in a way the programmer knows when creating a software. I had the situation that the properties stored in the registry where system wide but I needed different settings for every user.

Well actually not really a problem. (Except if you need to use Windows 7) I located the settings in the registry exported them into a .reg file and a small .cmd batch job should append a user specific setting and start the program.
The only problem is that a line like
echo pfrdlpfrz=c:\blabla\pfrz>>export.reg
resulted in a new line in export.reg with CHINESE CHARACTERS !!!!

But if you take the content of the export.reg and copy it into a NEW file and save it as export.reg then everything works.

PLEASE TELL ME WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON HERE !!!!!

Ok, it’s actually only a small problem, but PLEASE tell me the concept behind this – or – oh I understand – there is no concept…..
