Saving file paths

Hi ,
I have a program installed on the user's PC that creates and saves files on the user's PC and on the network. The first time a user logs in to use the program, I want it to get the file save paths from the user and thereafter, each time a person uses the program it should automatically save the files ( using the paths entered by the user previously) . How can I store the paths entered by the user and get the program to use those paths without having to ask the user each time? Could someone help?

Thanks,
Vignesh

this is easy.. Use GetSetting/SaveSetting

To save a setting to the registry, do this:

SaveSetting app.exename, "SavePaths", "Location1", "c:\path1"


to retrieve
szPath = getsetting(app.exename, "SavePaths", "Location1")
