Hi all!!
I am trying to save the subkeys and values of a key in a text file and i am not getting the result. the file created has not a recognizable name and there is nothing stored in it.. so please help me in this....thanx
here is the code:
// recent.cpp : Defines the entry point for the console application.

#include "stdafx.h"
#include "recent.h"

#ifdef _DEBUG
#define new DEBUG_NEW

// The one and only application object

CWinApp theApp;

using namespace std;

int _tmain(int argc, TCHAR* argv[], TCHAR* envp[])
	int nRetCode = 0;

	// initialize MFC and print and error on failure
	if (!AfxWinInit(::GetModuleHandle(NULL), NULL, ::GetCommandLine(), 0))
		// TODO: change error code to suit your needs
		_tprintf(_T("Fatal Error: MFC initialization failed\n"));
		nRetCode = 1;
		HKEY hTestKey;
		if(RegOpenKeyEx( HKEY_CURRENT_USER,TEXT("SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Internet Explorer\\Settings"),0,KEY_READ,&hTestKey) == ERROR_SUCCESS )
		{ cout<<"Into the registry"; getch();}
		 LPCTSTR name=(LPCTSTR)"mydata.txt";
	   cout<<"file loaded"; 


	return nRetCode;

line 32: you can't typecast ascii to unicode. should be something like this: LPCTSTR name= _TEXT("mydata.txt");
