    I have the following entries in HKCU tree
    Code:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JP Software\Take Command 19.0
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JP Software\Take Command 19.0 x64
    
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JPPlugins\SafeChars
    
    TCC 19.10.44 x64 Windows 7 [Version 6.1.7601]

    This is the only TCMD I use so I guess I can get rid of
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JP Software\Take Command 19.0

    Are there any other areas of the registry that JPSoft uses? I assume one will be wherever the registration information is kept.

    Thanks in advance.....

    Registration information is kept in a file in C:\ProgramData\JP Software.

    TCMD keeps a number of keys & values in HKCU\Software\JP Software. TCC also saves file associations to the registry.

    Yes, if you've created file associations.

    And there's the *\Software\Caphyon keys. The HKLM one seems to mention every upgrade I've ever made! Below are just the v19 ones. Are they of any value?

    There are also collections of keys for older TCMD versions similar to those. But v19 seems to be special. For v19 (and only v19) all those GUIDs also appear as names of subkeys of HKLM\SOFTWARE\JP Software. Is it really necessary?

    They're required if you want to do an uninstall or repair.

    Could you be more precise? The only one that seems like it might be of any value is the one for the currently-installed build. What good are the older ones?
    Those keys in the JPSoftware key contain only AI_IA_ENABLE = 1, and the ones in the Caphyon key contain no data. Furthermore, only the last of those GUIDs (build 44) is mentioned elsewhere in the registry. And I'm confident that Windows doesn't have distributions of every build of v19 I've ever installed. So what good are all those keys, and why have they started to appear in HKLM\JP Software only for v19?
