Hi,Experts:
   I have problems regarding regstry, please give me your help.

   I can create a registry key, but can't set string value to it, my coding is like following;

--

        //here szKey="Software\\testReg\\MyLoginkey1"
     dwErr = RegCreateKeyEx( HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT,
     szKey,
     0,
     "",
     REG_OPTION_NON_VOLATILE,
     KEY_WRITE || KEY_QUERY_VALUE || KEY_READ,
     NULL,
     &hkey,
     &dwDisp);

     if (dwErr != ERROR_SUCCESS) {
          //MessageBox(0,"Failed","Failed",0);
          bRet = FALSE;
     }

       if (dwDisp == REG_CREATED_NEW_KEY ) {


          // Set the registry values as REG_DWORD
          /*
          RegSetValueEx(hkey,
          "MyValueName0",    
          0,
          REG_DWORD,
          (BYTE*)&num,
          sizeof(num));
          */
         

          // Set the registry values as REG_SZ
          RegSetValueEx(hkey,
          "MyValueName1",    
          0,
          REG_SZ,
          (BYTE*)szRegValue1, //char* szRegValue1="Test"
          sizeof(*szRegValue1));

          bRet = TRUE;
     }


     // Finished with key

I found out the problem :I had used KEY_WRITE to created, and after that I change to  KEY_WRITE || KEY_QUERY_VALUE || KEY_READ to order to Query Value and create Value1.

sorry for posting this stupid question.

Use:

KEY_ALL_ACCESS

instead of the:

KEY_WRITE || KEY_QUERY_VALUE || KEY_READ

mess.  

And besides that, it must be:

KEY_WRITE | KEY_QUERY_VALUE | KEY_READ

The "||" operator is LOGICAL OR where the "|" operator is the BITWISE OR.
