hivexget(1)				 Windows Registry			      hivexget(1)

NAME
       hivexget - Get subkey from a Windows Registry binary "hive" file

SYNOPSIS
	hivexget hivefile '\Path\To\SubKey'

	hivexget hivefile '\Path\To\SubKey' name

NOTE
       This is a low-level tool.  For a more convenient way to navigate the Windows Registry in
       Windows virtual machines, see virt-win-reg(1).  For proper regedit formatting, use
       hivexregedit(1).

DESCRIPTION
       This program navigates through a Windows Registry binary "hive" file and extracts either
       all the (key, value) data pairs stored in that subkey or just the single named data item.

       In the first form:

	hivexget hivefile '\Path\To\SubKey'

       "hivefile" is some Windows Registry binary hive, and "\Path\To\Subkey" is a path within
       that hive.  NB the path is relative to the top of this hive, and is not the full path as
       you would use in Windows (eg. "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM" is not a valid path).

       If the subkey exists, then the output lists all data pairs under this subkey, in a format
       similar to "regedit" in Windows.

       In the second form:

	hivexget hivefile '\Path\To\SubKey' name

       "hivefile" and path are as above.  "name" is the name of the value of interest (use "@"
       for the default value).

       The corresponding data item is printed "raw" (ie. no processing or escaping) except:

       1.  If it's a string we will convert it from Windows UTF-16 to UTF-8, if this conversion
	   is possible.  The string is printed with a single trailing newline.

       2.  If it's a multiple-string value, each string is printed on a separate line.

       3.  If it's a numeric value, it is printed as a decimal number.
