Hi
use shellExecute to launch regedit.exe
      ShellExecute(NULL, "open", "c://Winnt//regedit.exe","", "c://winnt//",SW_SHOW);      
It takes files as parameter so cannot go to a perticular key by giving values as paramater.

Hope this helps

Launching the regedit is not a problem.
I must launch it and go to a perticular key (if possible).

I don't think that is possible.  But you can change the key from your program.  I.e display the current key value to the user and let the user edit it, then write the new version.
