Disclosed is a Registry Database, which can be used to maintain registry entries.

Registry Database is developed to store registry entries. This functionality is developed specifically to address registry maintenance of a particular application.

This application stores one record per individual entry in the database. Flat file is used to store data, but it can use any database to store records.

Registry entries in this database can be sorted based on sorting algorithm by using some attributes from the record. Registry entries can be stored, deleted, and searched based on search criteria.

This functionality is used in one of the software, which needs to be installed at multiple locations on a given machine.
