CRegKey::SetStringValue

 

Call this method to set the string value of the registry key.

LONG SetStringValue(
   LPCTSTR pszValueName,
   LPCTSTR pszValue,
   DWORD dwType = REG_SZ 
) throw( );

pszValueName

Pointer to a string containing the name of the value to set. If a value with this name is not already present, the method adds it to the key.

pszValue

Pointer to the string data to be stored with the specified value name.

dwType

The type of the string to write to the registry: either REG_SZ (the default) or REG_EXPAND_SZ (for multistrings).

If the method succeeds, the return value is ERROR_SUCCESS. If the method fails, the return value is a nonzero error code defined in WINERROR.H.

This method uses RegSetValueEx to write the value to the registry.
