    Re: Need Correct Registry Values and Instructions for Windows

    Here are some useful registry-related instructions ::

    Instructions to backup the registry

    1. Click Start >> click Run >> type regedit >> press Enter
    2. Do one of the following:
      - To backup the entire registry, click My Computer.
      - To backup a specific group of keys or a specific key, click the folder or key.
    3. On the main menu, click File >> then click Export. The Export Registry File dialog box appears.
    4. Specify a name and location for the file, then click Save. The export process begins.
      If you are exporting the entire registry, it can take a few minutes, and the file size can be up to 100 MB or more. If you are exporting just one key, the file size is approximately 1 KB.
    5. After you edit the registry, if you are experiencing problems caused by editing the registry, you can import the backed up file:
      • On the main menu, click File >> then click Import. The Import Registry File dialog box appears.
      • Click the .reg file to import >> then click Open. The import process begins. If you are importing the entire registry, it can take a few minutes.



    Instructions to create a .reg file

    1. In a text editor, such as Notepad, type or paste the following text :
      • on the first line: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
      • on the second line : key path..for e.g. [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 4.0\EventRules](include brackets)
      • on the third line, name of the key and the value (DWORD) for the key..for e.g. "FolderMonitorWorkerThreadCount"=dword:00000100 (include quotation marks)

    2. Close the file and save it with a .reg extension. For example, type: threadcount.reg
    3. Double-click the file and follow the prompts to install the key into the registry. If you receive an error, open the file to verify the information was typed correctly. The .reg file can be transported to and used on other computers.


    Instructions to create the key manually

    1. Click Start >> click Run >> type regedit >> press Enter
    2. Expand the My Computer node, the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE node, and the SOFTWARE node to find the GlobalSCAPE nodes.
    3. Click the applicable GlobalSCAPE node (as described below) >> right-click it >> point to New >> then click Key. This makes a new folder under the GlobalSCAPE node.
    4. Type a name for the key based on the instructions below, then press Enter.
    5. Right-click the key >> point to New >> then click DWORD Value.
    6. Type a name for the DWORD value, then press Enter.
    7. Double-click the DWORD. The Edit DWORD Value dialog box appears.
    8. In the Value data box, type an integer, then click OK.
    9. Close the registry, then restart the Server service.
