Due to a problem with some of our servers I was trying to compare 3 registry’s because 2 did function correct and one had an unidentified problem which caused the problem.
I found a nice and easy tool called regdiff. It once was nested inside the Windows Resource Kit.

Easiest is too export the two directories you want to compare. You also can use the whole registry but think about all the variables which are different per server. You will get a lot of failed compares then.
If you just have a little clue where too search for your problem, try to compare some directories there instead of the whole regsitry.
