Under NT 4.0,Visual c++ 4.1.
RegSaveKey always fails (given a valid handle, path for file that doesn't exist, and NULL for security attrib.)
I need: a possible explanation + a working source code example using the RegSaveKey and its compliant RegRestoreKey.
TIA.

Be sure that you pass valid directory for file that doesn't exist. For example you pass "c:\dir1\subdir1\file.reg" but there is no "subdir1" subdirectory in "c:\dir1" or there is no "dir1" directory on "c:" drive. "RegSaveKey" function can't create new directory.

The calling process must have the SE_BACKUP_NAME privilege. For more information about privileges, see Privileges(in visual c++ online help).
