I wish to store some form data to the registry so that it can be retrieved later. I see that my wizard generated app includes this code:
      SetRegistryKey(_T("my app name"));
Since the object that I've instantiated where the form data is stored happens before this, I guess I have to move this into that class( If I expect to be able to store my form data in the registry the very first time the program is run, before these functions have ever been called on the user's computer). What header file should I include to be able to do this? They're defined in afxwin.h, but including this still creates an identifier not found error.

Thanks a lot,
