Thanks for all the suggestions, didn't think there would be much response. I'll try out the batch file method suggested.
I do think that a version for U3 would be practical, from what I understand it wouldn't take much to modify the existing code and it would enable what I'm sure are a large number of people, an easy way to transport their collections. I just picked up a 2 gb drive for $35 so it's very affordable and there are a great number of people that don't like the idea of messing with the registry.
Thanks everyone

The batch files are not really needed.  I just used them because it saves me from re-enter my registration information and having to change my options every time  I run it on a different machine. 

I also added an autorun.inf to my drive that adds DVD Profiler to the list of autorun options when I connect it to a computer.

hey Schultzy,

In this thread you suggest creating the regexport.bat file to reexport the keys and then remove them.

Why did you not mention it in the new thread?
Is it because you had the same problem I'm having, that is, you cannot get a bat file to both create the keys, and then export and remove them? 
I seem to need to keep the import bat file and the export bat file seperate and run them separately.

Did you run into this problem?

I still export them if I change something, but don't really delete the keys anymore. 

Try this....

Create a text file and save it as remove.reg and have this in it...

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\InterVocative Software]

then have your dvdp.bat file say this...

cd dvdprofiler
regedit /s dvdprofiler.reg
dvdpro.exe
pause
REGEDIT.EXE /E dvdprofiler.reg "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\InterVocative Software"
regedit /s remove.reg

the batch file will stay in teh background as you use DVDProfiler.  After you close DVDProfiler, the batch file should say press any key.  It will then re-export the reg file (incase you made any changes in options) and then delete the registry key.

though I have to get creative soon.  my girlfriend's mom (who computer I use from time to time) likes DVDProfiler and wants me to help her download and install it.  That means I have to develop a batch so when I run it from my USB drive it does the following:

exports her reg settings
imports mine
removes mine
imports hers

Maybe I will jsut have to write menu based batch that we I make a selection depending on the computer...

BTW I am doing this more out of something to do than something needing to be done.. I do have a life... really... I swear

Maybe this script of mine is any help for you.

Actually, I already tried that exact thing, even had the PAUSE line in there.  The script runs, but the keys do not export and do not get removed.  If I run those exact lines in a separate batch file afterwards, it works fine. 

Strange...
