Yes, you can.
Try the functions:
WriteProfileInt()
WriteProfileSection()
WriteProfileString()

I am not using Visual C++, i am using DJGPP to write and compile my program. Can I access the Registry using DJGPP? If not, I would be using MFC.

I have not used DJGPP. So, I wouldn't be able to tell.

Use the registry functions : RegOpenKeyEx, RegCloseKey, RegCreateKeyEx, RegDeleteKey, RegOpenKey. The functions WriteProfileInt etc. write only into .INI files NOT the registry.

What is DJGPP ? :-) Please enlighten me ..
Also these functions are available in the Win32 environment. So if DJGPP supports the Win32 API, I am sure they should work. Otherwise you have an option of going back to MFC - actually these are not MFC functions but Win32 API functions.

Ok I am using Visual C++ to write this program. Using the functions listed by fstab how would I add a value to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\RUN?

You have to open the key using:
RegOpenKeyEx
Then write the value using:
RegSetValueEx
Then close the registry key using:
RegCloseKey
