I am writing a program in which needs to open a key in the registry - I can't make head nor tail of the Delphi help file though! It's a long key with many subdir's!

i.e HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{very-long-name-here!}\etc.

I then wish to delete the values in that key

Can anyone help me?

Cheers

Jim

How about this....





procedure DeleteKeyValues(TheRootKey: HKEY; KeyName: String);
var
  Reg: TRegistry;
  Values: TStringList;
  I: integer;
begin
  Reg := TRegistry.Create;
  Values := TStringList.Create;
  try
    With Reg do
    begin
      RootKey := TheRootKey;
      OpenKey(KeyName, False);
      GetValueNames(Values);
      for I := 0 to Values.Count - 1 do
        DeleteValue(Values[I]);
      CloseKey;
    end;
  finally
    Values.Free;
    Reg.Free;
  end;
end;




You would call it in your case like this:

DeleteKeyValues(HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, 'CLSID\{very-long-name-here!}\etc.')


Hope this helps
