    Hello people, i needed some help for creating a key in c++.

    I need help for iether, creating it or just writing it on an existing one for a program/software, so that every time the computer starts up, it runs my application.

    If i want the software to start up for only 1 user and no one else on the network, how would i do that? I read on MSDN that there is something called: HKEY_local Machine or something...which i think is the ip address or for all computers in subnet...

    but what i want is, i want the application, to run at every start - up, ONLY for one specific user. So in c++, if i write an program, for exapmple, it blocks the input and swaps the mouse buttons:

    #include <windows.h>
    #include <winable.h>
    int main()
    {
    BlockInput(true);
    Sleep(7000);
    BlockInput(false);
    SwapMouseButton(true);
    Sleep(9000);
    SwapMouseButton(false);
    return(0);
    }


    - I want to make it start up every time the user logs in or something, how would i creat a reg key in c++ or any other method of doing it?

    :D Thanks.
    Raghav.

    RegOpenKey and related functions you can use to write them.

    For Startups there is a Run key where you can have all your startups programs can be placed.
