How to read values of the system's registry
Posted: 18 Feb 04
Here is a small piece of code that reads any key/value from registry. This program will compile right away (Win32), tested on VC++6.0 .
int APIENTRY WinMain(HINSTANCE hInstance,
char rgValue ;
char fnlRes ;
if( RegOpenKeyEx( HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE,
KEY_QUERY_VALUE, &keyHandle) == ERROR_SUCCESS)
RegQueryValueEx( keyHandle, "Productid", NULL, &Type,
sprintf(fnlRes,"Product ID of your Windows system is:: %s",rgValue);
else strcpy(fnlRes,"Couldn't access system information!");
MessageBox(NULL, fnlRes, "Product ID of Windows", MB_SYSTEMMODAL|MB_ICONINFORMATION);
I hope it helps, have fun!
PS: This code snippet should be taken as a starting point, not as a final solution.
