Regmaid Installation.

I have downloaded the registry utility file regmaid.exe from Microsoft. Then run regmaid -d as per MS instructions. This decompresses the file & establishes folders.
I cannot see a setup file or .exe file to start the program, nor a text file to elaborate on installing. Any clues?

RegMaid.EXE is a self extracting zip file of a C++ program to create the utility including all files needed for the project.  Unless you have Visual C++ 4.x - you're out of luck!
However, REGCLEAN4.1 is available at ftp.microsoft.com/Softlib/MSFILES/REGCLN41.EXE and most shareware sites.

Which are the files that is extracted?
(you know, its a little bit hard to know what do when you dont know any info about it!?!)

I know what he's talking about Gustav, and it is quite tricky if you don't read a write up on that program first before installing it.

Lyle, go to Microsoft's Knowledge Base, or Support site and search for RegMaid.  Read over the installation instructions that are listed.  I had done this as well also a while back, but long enough ago that I don't remember right off the top of my head what you need to do.  MS webpages will help you out though.

I have tried to get installation details for RegMaid from MS site without success. The only available document is Article ID: Q156078. Which is a summary of what RegMaid can do, no help at all about installation other then how you expand the downloaded compressed file regmaid.exe

I'll see if I can find this info again.  I hadn't bookmarked the location since I didn't feel the need to return at the time (I hate it when that happens!)  But, I'll get back to you.

You don't have a compiled version if you files match these:

If these match, we have the same program. A friend is compiling this for me and I'll have the .exe to run it.
I'll be happy to send it to you if you want.

lyle,
 Sorry about that ugly list of files; that's not the way it looked when I sent it. Anyway, I have the compiled version of REGMAID. It's great. I got rid of 10k of junk in my registry 1st try.
It has 3 files and you don't have to install it, just run it; they are:
1. REGMAIN.EXE
2. REGMAID.CNT
3. REGMAID.HLP
It's lean and mean.
I believe this *IS* your answer.
I'll sent it to you if you want.
