Writes string data to a value in the registry.

BOOL WriteSectionString(
   LPCTSTR lpszSubSection,
   LPCTSTR lpszEntry,
   LPCTSTR lpszValue 

[in] lpszSubSection

A string that contains the name of a registry key.

[in] lpszEntry

A string that contains the value to set.

[in] lpszValue

The string data to write to the registry.

TRUE if this method is successful; otherwise FALSE.

The lpszSubSection parameter is not an absolute path for a registry entry. It is a relative path that is appended to the end of the default registry key for your application. To get or set the default registry key, use the methods CWinAppEx::GetRegistryBase and CWinAppEx::SetRegistryBase, respectively.

If the value specified by lpszEntry does not exist under lpszSubSection, this method will create it.
