Thread: Registry API

    Registry API

    In reviewing the VB6 setup, I seem to have found to types of API calls for
    the registry. Can anyone tell me what differences there are between the
    standard Registry API (i.e. RegOpenKey, RegCloseKey, etc.) and those that
    have the "OS" prefix (i.e. OSRegOpenKey, OSRegCloseKey, etc.)?

    Thank you,

    Hi Thomas,

    The "OS" ones (if you're talking about the code in the project) are probably
    simply wrappers. I haven't looked at the source in a long time.
