Minor Updates to Auto_rip

Monday, August 10, 2015 Posted by Corey Harrell
This is a quick post to pass along that I updated my auto_rip script. For those who may not know, auto_rip is a wrapper script for Harlan Carvey's RegRipper program and it executes RegRipper’s plug-ins based on categories and in a specific order. To learn more about my script please see my previous post Unleashing auto_rip. The auto_rip updates are pretty minor. I separated out the changes to a change log instead of documenting changes in the script itself, added a device category (due to a new plug-in), and I added most of the new RegRipper plug-ins Harlan created (as of 7/30/15). The download location can be found on the right of my blog or using this link to its Google drive location.

****** 08/11/2015  Update *******

At this time I removed the compiled executable from auto_rip. The compiled executable is having issues and I'm working to resolve it. However, the perl script is present and works fine. As soon as I'm able to compile the script into an exe then I'll add it back to the auto_rip archive
  1. Thanks Corey, I can't thank you or Harlan enough for explaining and most of all creating this for the rest of us to use. Much appreciated.

    Hi Corey,

    I have been having a hard time getting the Perl script to work. I keep getting the error that Perl is not a recognized internal or external command even though it's set as an environment variable in PATH for both user and system. I've tried running it a few different ways but no dice. I'm running AR inside of a folder with all RR scripts and have ran AR with the EXE in the past. Is there something different I need to be doing?

  3. I'm getting the following error when running auto_rip.pl:

    Can't locate Parse/Win32Registry.pm in @INC (@INC contains: C:\Perl64\site\lin C:\Perl64\Site\lib.) at rip.pl line 28.

    BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at rip.pl line 28.

    Is this a Reg Ripper problem, Auto_Rip problem, or something else?


  4. John,

    Your Perl installation is missing the Parse Win32Registry module. RegRipper uses this module to parse hives. To install it run the following command:

    ppm install Parse-Win32Registry
