I want to make my application able to write to the Windows registry, even if the user who is logged on the domain has no right to permorm such operation on his own machine.

The app calls API function like RegCreateKeyEx and RegSetValueExString to save to the registry.

Thanks,

freg.

Richie,

I think i've found that since i wrote to the registry in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE section, the simple user can not save the app settings.  Probably i must write the settings in the HKEY_CURRENT_USER.

But what if i want all users using those settings, even they're simple users ?
