This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature.
The Registry2 object exposes the Windows registry settings that maintain an instance of Microsoft SQL Server and run-time parameters. The Registry2 object extends the functionality of the Registry object.
The Registry2 object extends the functionality of the Registry object for use with features that were introduced in SQL Server 2000. It also inherits the properties and methods of the Registry object. With the Registry2 object, you can:
Specify non-default locations for backup and agent log files when running multiple instances of SQL Server.
Manage Net-Library settings for multiple instances of SQL Server.
The methods and properties of the Registry2 object may not be compatible with instances of SQL Server version 7.0 or earlier. For more information about using the Registry2 object in an application that also runs with an instance of SQL Server 7.0, refer to the Remarks section for specific methods and properties. For more information, see Programming Extended SQL-DMO Objects.
