This function reads REG_DWORD registry values.


HRESULT WINAPI RegistryGetDWORD( 
  HKEY hKey,
  LPCTSTR pszSubKey,
  LPCTSTR pszValueName,
  DWORD* pdwData
);

hKey

[in] Handle to the open key or a predefined root value.

pszSubKey

[in] Key where the value is stored. If this value is NULL, then pszValueName is assumed to be under hkey.

pszValueName

[in] Named value to retrieve. If this value is NULL, the function retrieves the default value.

pdwData

[out] A pointer to the buffer that will receive the data.

The following table shows the return values for this function.

Value Description

S_OK

Data is copied to the buffer.

E_INVALIDARG

Invalid hkey or pdwData.

E_DATATYPE_MISMATCH

The value is not type REG_DWORD.

An error value returned by RegOpenKey or RegQueryValueEx.

Error value wrapped as a FACILITY_WIN32 HRESULT.

Success indicates that the value is copied to the buffer pointed to by pdwData. Failure does not cause any change.

The header file snapi.h contains definitions for the registry keys, paths, values, and bitmasks for all the base notifications that are provided by the system.

If the key pointed to by hkey and pszSubkey does not exist, the function fails.

The following code example demonstrates how to use RegistryGetDWORD.

                          SN_CONNECTIONSBLUETOOTHCOUNT_VALUE, 
                          &cBluetoothConnections);
    if (SUCCEEDED(hr))
        return cBluetoothConnections;
    else
        return 0;
