RegReloc is free command line utility for Microsoft Windows. It allows to copy, move or delete a single key or a set of keys belonging to the same branch of Windows Registry. These functions can be required during registry cleanup or special types of software upgrades. For example, if product copyright owner changes name, or sells the rights to the product to another company, etc., new owner will most likely want to update the registry key name for the product while retain values of sub-keys that store user specific settings. In this case RegReloc can become part of application installation package and perform such changes during the next product update.
Misuse of this application can cause data loss or even corrupt Windows installation. Do not execute it unless you have complete Registry backup and you are absolutely confident in what you are doing. Remember, entire responsibility of the consequences is with you.
