Registery Help!

  • 19 years ago

    How come this code doesn't work? I get Expected:=
    SaveSettingString("HKEYCURRENTUSER", "Software\Microsoft\MessengerService\", "IM Color", "FF 00 00")

    I've tried it with severla registery modules too, always the same error! Thanks.

    I presume you are actually using the GetSetting and SaveSetting commands. These commands only ever save to
    HKEYCURRENTUSER\Software\VB and VBA Program Settings\%AppName%

    If you want to save/read from any where else you need to use the API registry functions. (There is a class module available from which does the hard work for you....)
