Registry Info
Desktop

The first source for RegDump information is the Windows Registry which is an integral part of the Windows 95/98/NT operating system.  The registry stores most of the configurable information of Windows and the applications that run on it.

The second source is the information that can be accessed from the desktop.  This includes everything that a mouse can execute from the desktop without using the keyboard.

RegDump presents two distinct views of the data installed on the system to allow maximum package identification without the tediousness of identifying all software packages from executable file names.  This is a tradeoff between completeness (i.e. not every DOS based application will be identified by RegDump) and missed software products (since RegDump can identify some applications that would be missed by using either of RegDump's identification methods by itself).
