    ByVal dwIndex As Long, ByVal lpName As String, _
    ByVal cbName As Long) As Long

'to get values use:
Declare Function RegEnumValue Lib "advapi32.dll" _
    Alias "RegEnumValueA" (ByVal hKey As Long, _
    ByVal dwIndex As Long, ByVal lpValueName As String, _
    lpcbValueName As Long, lpReserved As Long, _
