     Included in this module are several functions to help you in handling with the registry. I have written and tested these as best I can. You may use them at your own risk. I frequently use SetAppKeyValue and GetAppKeyValue without any problems. If you wish to alter or test any of the functions, I strongly advise you to backup your registry first (Start > Run "regedit"). The included functions are: CloseKey, CreateKey, DeleteKey, DeleteKeyStruct, EnumKey, GetAppKeyValue, GetKeyValue, OpenKey, SetAppKeyValue, and SetKeyValue. This code covers: Constants, Functions, GoTo, On Error, Recursion, RegCloseKey API, RegCreateKeyEx API, RegDeleteKey API, RegEnumKeyEx API, RegQueryValueEx API, RegOpenKeyEx API, RegSetValueEx API, and Types.

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net including:McAfee.com
