Use TRegistry to read external .REG file, possible?

Is it possible to have a registry-like file that I can use to save infomation into, like a person's settings, etc...I'd like to use it for a single storage system, but, TRegistry always defaults to the local computer's registry and I cannot specify an external file.RegEdit allows you to connect to a NetWork registry file so I know it can be done, but how?

To Connect to a NetWork registry file, use RegistryConnect.  You can get more info on this function in the delphi help files.

RegistryConnect(const UNCName: string): Boolean;

However, if I understand your needs, TIniFile would probably do a better job for you.  You can use a TIniFile to make custom ini files to save personal settings and the like.
