I am trying to turn the following command into an api call so the command can be executed on win9X systems not just NT.

REG load HKLM\TempData "F:\Documents and Settings\Test\ntuser.dat"

My attempts so far have been less then successful,  can someone turn that command into a call to the API for me?

Cheers,

`Andy

I don't think you can load an NT profile under Win95, but a Win95 profile should be fine. NT has security settings for the registry hives, Win95 has not, so the file formats are probably different between them.
