Deleting Windows Registry Key

Deleting Windows Registry Key

Hello friends

I want to delete (though VC++ programming)
a Windows Registry Key (on Windows NT/2000
workstation) which has the following

Logged user/Administrator : Read
SYSTEM                    : Full control

How can I do it ?  Would you please help


RE: Deleting Windows Registry Key

You can also use the REGEDIT /? from DOS prompt to see the command line options.  It should read something like:

C:\WINNT\REGEDIT /D HEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\PcSecure

NOTE--PcSecure is obviously a program of my design and I want to delete ONLY my prog's uninstall feature from the control panel's Uninstall screen. So that a user doesn't uninstall it again and get an err msg about not finding the UNINSTALL string.

Just be very very careful on what you delete.

Also, if you ment "How to get to registry" selete RUN and type in REGEDIT and the registry editor will begin.

Good Luck, Happy programming.


By the twitching of my thumb, something wicked this way comes........oh, it's only a boogy.
