Hello.
I have a program running on windows xp, it uses the qtintf.dll and some registry keys.
Now I'm moving to windows 7 and I can run the program but it can't read (or find) registry information.

I have the program and dll together in a folder in program files (x86). and run the program in compatible mode for xp.

regards
Oli

The keys are probably under the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\VirtualStore hive.
This is were are redirected the writes to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE registry hive by programs not compatible with Vista or Windows 7.
