In VB you can write to the registry with Savesetting command as:

SaveSetting Application, Section, Key, Your value

But it's limited to the section:

'VBA and VB settings'/your program name/...

If you want to write to other locations you must use Win32 API.

In fact, the program I am writing are going to modify the registry value that don't belong it, such as ICQ, or netscape, etc.
Here's a class I made to make registry editing really easy, it works as a wrapper around the registry API's..
Humm.. maybe I should have added a example even if the class is really really easy to use. ,)

  Dim Registry As New clsRegistry
  Call Registry.CreateNewKey(HKEY_CURRENT_USER, "Software\MyApplication")
  Call Registry.SetKeyValue(HKEY_CURRENT_USER, "Software\MyApplication", "MyData", &HFFFF, REG_DWORD)
