I am trying to save a Registry's KEY using the command  RegSaveKey().
I get an error message "The specified module could not be found" and an empty file is created.
Has anybody an answer to this problem?
I am administrator on my computer, working with NT4

Check the validity of key you are passing to RegSaveKey()using RegQueryValue() API. May be the Key value is not correct.

In order to perform this operation, you need a specific user right:
'Back up files and directories'
If not, your file will be created but you will not be allowed to retrieve information
