I would go the simple way, with a CFile object.

Off the top of my head:

Writing:

CFile    file(_T("mycombo.cnt"), CFile::modeCreate);
CString  szItem;

for(int i=0;i<m_combo.GetCount();i++) {
 m_combo.GetLBText(i, szItem);
 file.WriteString(szItem);
 file.WriteString(_T("\n"));
}

Reading:
CFile    file(_T("mycombo.cnt"), CFile::modeRead);
CString  szItem;

m_combo.ResetContent();
while( file.ReadString(szItem) ) {
 m_combo.AddString(szItem);
}

Note: you should encapsultae this in try..catch for file exceptions and add some customization.

I think WriteString is not a member of CFile class, in the above code that u have mentioned.
Please look into it.

_T is the macro to handle Unicode or ANSI text literals.

If you program is always going to be compiled as ANSI (8 bits per character), just leave it out.
