When trying to perform RegSaveKey()
the function returns error saying

"A required privilege is not held by the client."

How do I give right privilage to my process. Doing it from user manager didn't help.

Thanks

There is a key in my registry,
under HKEY_CURRENT_USER,
I put it in lpSubKey.

LONG error = RegOpenKeyEx(                          hKey,                           lpSubKey,                                 0,                                      KEY_ALL_ACCESS,                         &phkResult
       );
                        
LPCSTR f = "back.reg";
LONG error2 = RegSaveKey(      
            hKey, "back.reg", NULL);
