RegistrySizeLimit Anyone?

By WiZardly ·
Where would I find the Windows NT "RegistrySizeLimit" equivalent in Windows 95, 98 and ME registry?
In WIN NT it's located under HKEY_Local_Machine\System\CurrentControlSet\Control
as stated in yesterdays Windows NT tip "SIZING UP THE REGISTRY"
Kind regards,
Nick

RegistrySizeLimit Anyone?

RSL only applies to NT3x, NT4 and Win2K. Win9x has no restrictions on registry size.

Thanks anyhow Dukey1 but, all of a sudden, when installing a program (any one now), I get a "The 64Kb Maximum Registry Size Reached" message & I am unable to install any program...unless I uninstall something to make room for it. (i.e. Running Win 95 OSR-2.5C)
Any more ideas?

Try this Microsoft KB Article Q247497. It may offer you a workaround. Also, look at Q122867

What I said before was technically correct. Win95 has a limits on Registry key size. That doesn't limit total Registry size but it can limit the number of programs you can install.

Click on Start, Run, and type in Regedit to access the Registry.
