I'm programming some Network Information program with Delphi 2.Program reads NT registry like as 'DefalutGateway' or 'Subnetmask' value(that is TCP/IP information).I used
TRegistry to read get value of 'subnetmask' and 'defaultGateway'.These two fields data type are 'REG_MULTI_SZ' but actual data are binary not string.How can I read these fields? I tried to read these fields with
Registry.ReadString.I wanna your help !!

You can't access REG_MULTI_SZ with TRegistry, you will need to use the API.

Try this wrapper, it works (tested) but it has no errorchecking
(i.e. it doesn't see if the data is REG_MULTI_SZ or if List is
<>nil):

type
  TMultiStrRegistry = class(TRegistry)
  public
    function ReadMultiString(const Name: string; List: TStrings): Integer;
  end;

...

function TMultiStrRegistry.ReadMultiString(const Name: string; List: TStrings): Integer;
{$ifopt R+}
  {$RANGECHECKS OFF}
{$endif}
type
  PData  = ^TData;
  TData  = Array[0..0] of Char;
var
  Len    : Integer;
  RegData: TRegDataType;
  Data   : PData;
  DataOrg: PData;
begin
  Len := GetDataSize(Name);
  if Len > 0 then
  begin
    GetMem(DataOrg, Len);
    GetData(Name, DataOrg, Len, RegData);
    Data := DataOrg;
    Result := 0;
    repeat
      frmMain.ListBox1.Items.Add(StrPas(Data^));
      Inc(Result);
      Inc(Data, StrLen(Data^)+1);
    until (Data^[0]=#0);
    FreeMem(DataOrg, Len); // release from original pointer
  end else Result := 0;
end;

...

with TMultiStrRegistry do begin
  ...
  StringCount := ReadMultiString(..., MyList);
  ...

Sorry! Wrong list:

"frmMain.ListBox1.Items.Add(StrPas(Data^));"
  should be
"List.Add(StrPas(Data^));"

Thanks your help !
I programmed with your answer but I got compile error
message.That is,'This form of method call only allowed
fo class methods' at 'ReadMultiString(...,...)'.
I added your class below form class .
Like this,

type
  Tsysteminfo = class(TForm)
    Panel1: TPanel;
          :
          :
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

  TMultiStrRegistry = class(TRegistry)
  public
    function ReadMultiString(const Name: string; List: TStrings):          Integer;
  end;

Help me again!!!
