Error importing registry settings, you can only import binary registry files
You may try to run a registry (*.reg) file only to receive this strange error:
Cannot Import ... The Specified is not a registry script. You can only import binary registry files from within the registry editor.
If you are sure that you are actually have a registry settings file, then your problem may come from the encoding of the file, or from a missing statement.
You may not use unicode encoding in a registry file, you have to open it with a simple text editor and make sure you save it as ascii text.
As you have the file open in your editor make sure you see this statement at the very top of the file:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
If this line is missing, you won’t be able to import the settings in the registry.
