I am not sure that you understand my recommendation. There is nothing wrong with your logic. It will work just fine.

What I am trying to say is that you are essentially copying the data twice. You could have RegQueryValueEx write directly into a buffer passed by the calling function rather than reading it into a local buffer allocated on the stack and then copying it into a buffer allocated on the heap.

It is just a simple matter of being more efficient. Smile | :)

Look on the bright side... at least we are down to complaining about optimizations! A year ago you could barely invoke a MessageBox. Poke tongue | ;-P

Your doing great and seem to be a very fast learner.

Best Wishes,
