Hi,

I want to stores data in the value field of an open registry key
with RegSetValue but value to store is a CString variable.

How do I do ?

CString exemple;

RegSetValueEx(hKey3, "file", 0, REG_SZ, (LPBYTE)exemple, 14 );

What you can do is the following,
RegSetValueEx(hKey3, "file", 0, REG_SZ, (CONST BYTE *)exemple, exemple.GetLength());

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

Commented:
Actually, you need to change that last parameter to exemple.GetLength()+1, since the registry needs to allocate enough space to include the terminating null character.
