Hive files are the undocumented binary blobs that Windows uses to
store the Windows Registry on disk.  Hivex is a library that can read
and write to these files.
'hivexsh' is a shell you can use to interactively navigate a hive
binary file.
'hivexregedit' lets you export and merge to the textual regedit
'hivexml' can be used to convert a hive file to a more useful XML
In order to get access to the hive files themselves, you can copy them
from a Windows machine.  They are usually found in
%systemroot%\system32\config.  For virtual machines we recommend
using libguestfs or guestfish to copy out these files.  libguestfs
also provides a useful high-level tool called 'virt-win-reg' (based on
hivex technology) which can be used to query specific registry keys in
an existing Windows VM.
