Hello

I'd like to copy a registry key. I tried to use the movekey command from Borlant C++ Builder but I can't copy from a root key to another.

ie I'd like to copy a key from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE to HKEY_CURRENT_USER

How could I do ????????????
Help me please, thanks

Seems me, that movekey works only in one Root Directory.
You need:
1. Get registry key value.
2. Delete (if you want) from old place
3. Add in new place(after changing RootKey property)
See more details in TRegistry component Help.

You're right, it is the method I used. But there is over 60 values in this key
So, I can't do it one after one

Actually, I decided to use
 for (n=1;n<='number of value in the key';n++)

it's a bit easier.......

Well, you are right, and I don't see easier
method. Of course, you can use direct Windows Api
for work with registry, but it is more complex.
Now, is I reply tou your Q?
