Anyone got a way of reading binary data from the registry WITHOUT using the TRegistry unit in delphi.

Needs to operate the exact same way as used in delphi - ie: ReadBinaryData(String, Buffer, BufSize)

Points and a grade A for a clean example.

TRegistry is just a light wrapper around Win32 API's registry functions:

RegOpenKey/RegOpenKeyEx
RegQueryValue/RegQueryValueEx
RegCloseKey

Check 'em out from the API help file, or read the source for the registry unit. I would say, that is a better way to learn ;-)
