Compare .reg files

By dan.cox ·
Can anyone recommend a proven tool for comparing .reg files?
I need to see what changes a patch install is making to the registry.
So I exported the registry before and after and want to compare.
I tried using Reg mon during the install but there is just way too much to sift through.
Any help would be great! Thanks!

I use a program named Regsnap. The Pro version is the way to go. If you do a before and after you can then compare the files. Its output is really easy to follow.
