RegDeleteKey with RegQuery !!!

Hi

I want to delete value from registry with regDeleteKey.

That value is find by RegQueryValueEx.

EX
LONG retCode4;
HKEY hKey4;
DWORD dwBytes4 = 128;
DWORD dwType4;
unsigned char szBuffer4[17];
retCode4 = RegOpenKeyEx(HKEY_CURRENT_USER,
                                          "SOFTWARE\\mice",
                                          0,
                                          KEY_ALL_ACCESS,
                                          &hKey4);

RegQueryValueEx(hKey4, "Number", 0, &dwType4,
                  szBuffer4, &dwBytes4);

RegDeleteKey (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, "Software\\exemple\\szBuffer4");

How do I do ?
Thanks in advance.

Hello:
Not sure why you are using RegQueryValue() and RegDeleteKey() to delete a value, here's an example code to delete the value with RegDeleteValue():

HKEY hKey;

RegOpenKeyEx(HKEY_CURRENT_USER,"SOFTWARE\\MySubKey",0,KEY_ALL_ACCESS,&hKey);
RegDeleteValue(hKey,"My Value");
RegCloseKey(hKey);

This is to delete "My Value" from the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\MySubKey
You can change this to whatever you want.  This code assumes no errors, and does not error handle.  Hope this helps,
