ok, i need to search for the various 'device parameters' keys under hklm\system\currentcontrolset\enum.  i'm actually looking for specific values but the main prob. seems to be in my recursive key search procedure, and keeping it restricted to the specified keys.

That part of the registry is better not handled directly.
The SetupDi functions handle that area.

Have a look at http://www.delphi-gems.net/Controls.php for my HID component which in effect handles
hklm\system\currentcontrolset\enum\HID
Also http://www.sf.net/projects/jedi-apilib is of interest (especially the Config Manager and Setup API part).
There are some examples included.
Also feel free ask me further questions robert_marquardt att gmx dott de
