WindowsXP registry changes

WindowsXP registry changes

Hello all.  I am working on doing some registry changes...  I have been researeching and I see a regcreateex but I am not quite u nderstanding.  Can someone show me the syntax how to change one registry key?   

RE: WindowsXP registry changes

Did you read the MSDN?

Although if you only need to change an existing key instead of creating a new one, you can use RegSetValueEx()
Although you'd need to open the key first with RegOpenKeyEx() and then close it with RegCloseKey().

There are some examples here:  http://www.codersource.net/win32/win32-registry/registry-operations.aspx
