Reads binary data from the registry.

BOOL GetSectionBinary(
   LPCTSTR lpszSubSection,
   LPCTSTR lpszEntry,
   LPBYTE* ppData,
   UINT* pBytes 

[in] lpszSubSection

A string that contains the relative path of a registry key.

[in] lpszEntry

A string that contains the value to read.

[out] ppData

A pointer to the buffer where the method stores the data.

[out] pBytes

A pointer to an unsigned integer. The method writes the size of ppData to this parameter.

True if successful; otherwise false.

This method reads binary data that is written to the registry using the methods CWinAppEx::WriteBinary and CWinAppEx::WriteSectionBinary.

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.
