I'm using this code snippet on Win98 without any problems, why does it not
work on NT. I need to make the change
on NT registry. Any help is appreciated.
thanks, michael

 try
        RootKey := HKEY_Classes_Root;
        if KeyExists('.xs') then
          begin
            OpenKey('.xs',False);  // Don't create key
            WriteString('Content Type', 'application/xstart');
            CloseKey;

Yes I have logged in as administrator.
Code executes, but nothing changes.

Are you sure the '.xs' key does exist on the machine you are running your program on?

I have looked on a couple of NT Servers at my work, and they do not have '.xs' keys in hkey_classes_root.

Does it come up with an error message or does the code run through successfully?
