Registry Types and Locations

  • Last Modified: 2019-02-14

There are three different types of registries (Machine, User, Custom). Each Machine can have any number of User and Custom registries:

Machine-level Registry

A registry with a well-known location that is queryable by anyone and, by default, requires administrative privileges to install/change.

  • Windows: %ProgramData%\upack
  • Linux: /var/lib/upack

User-level Registry

A registry with a well-known location based on the current username that can be changed by the current user and administrators.

  • Windows: %USER%\.upack
  • Linux: ~/.upack

Custom Registry

A registry with a different location and potentially different privileges.
