RegistrySettingsProvider Sample 

Download sample

This sample demonstrates how to persist application settings in the registry.

For information about using the samples, see the following topics:

Caution noteCaution

This provider uses assembly metadata, such as product name, to determine a workable registry path in which to store settings. These are not secure metadata elements; they are reasonably safe from collision, but not at all safe from malicious tampering. A robust implementation of the provider, meant for use in a production environment, should improve upon this pathing algorithm.
