SFT Explorer 1.2 (Updated)

Quick Post to just let everyone know that Kalle has updated the SFT Explorer tool to version 1.2. This now shows the deleted registry keys from a sequenced application! Very handy when trying to troubleshoot or understand the reg keys that are in the virtual registry.

As always brilliant to use and Brilliant to have!


You wanted to see what's inside SoftGrid package (SFT) file without using SoftGrid Sequencer?

By using SFT Explorer you can as it will show all that's inside your SFT package. Files, folders, virtual registry, virtual services ... all! And you can optionally export selected content out of the package, to examine files more closely or to migrate virtual registry settings to another package by importing exported reg-file.

With Virtualized System View™, you can even simulate how that package would look like on your local machine when run with SoftGrid SystemGuard environment up, enabling new type of troubleshooting possibilities when you can clearly see what is virtualized against your local system and in what manner.

With filtering you can quickly find certain filetypes, individual files or to see what files constitute the launch-data for package (files belonging to Feature Block 1 section of file).

By using Fast package loading -option, even extremely large packages are snap to open with SFT Explorer (with only loss of ability to see individual blocks per files).

  • Load SFT files - even slightly broken ones
