Hi everyone... I have a dialog based MFC. It will read a text file to get initial values. When the user exits the program, the text file will be updated with new initial values depending on what the user changed. I am concerned that the text file may be lost or seperated from the exe file. What can I do to avoid using a text file? I have had suggestions of using the registry, or using serialization. what is the best way and how do I do it? I read about serialization and got lost in the wording. Help... Thank you

If it's just a few fields in a dialog box, just use the registry and don't bother with serialization.

Searialization stores data in a separate file as well. The commonly used way in windows is to use the registry (Reg* functions), or Ini files.
