Reading the Registry with Windows NT

Reading the Registry with Windows NT

Reading the Registry with Windows NT

I have the problem of reading registry keys under Windows NT.
The program which is running on the account of the developer works fine to read the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/nnn/Path

If another user is using the same program it does not find this key.

What is going wrong?

Can anybody help me to solve the problem?

Thank you.


RE: Reading the Registry with Windows NT

Could you email the code for reading your registry?

RE: Reading the Registry with Windows NT

Hi Andy,
This post is pretty old, and I found the Solution.

It was a question of the Access Policy of windows NT to the Registry.

If you are interested in Handling the Registry. There is a FAQ in the C++ Forum
