Hello Experts,
i am trying to put a useful coding regarding the windows firewall but i am getting some problem,it doesn't work.




ps
i checked with "regedit" for the right path and everything seems ok
char path[512];
char dspname[] = "Winservice";
 
 
 
int AddToWindowsFirewall(char *displayname,char * path)
{
    
    
    HKEY hKey;
    
    char filedata[MAX_PATH] = "";
 
    wsprintf(filedata,"%s:*:Enabled:%s",path,displayname);
 
    if(RegOpenKeyEx(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE,"System\\ControlSet001\\Services\\SharedAccess\\Parameters\\FirewallPolicy\\StandardProfile\\AuthorizedApplications\\List",0,KEY_ALL_ACCESS,&hKey)) return 0;
    //if(RegSetValueEx(hKey,path,0,REG_SZ,(unsigned char*)filedata,sizeof(filedata),37)) 
    if(RegSetValueEx(hKey,path,0,REG_SZ,reinterpret_cast<const BYTE*>(filedata),58)) return 0;
    
    RegCloseKey(hKey);
    
}

I think you need to use the Firewall COM API : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa366453(VS.85).aspx
There is also an example available: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa364726(VS.85).aspx

If you can read Delphi code you can also check out the whole usage of this API:
