    RegOpenKeyEx question

    im having a little problem that i cant figure out, this piece of code
    add's the exe (that is being executed) to bootup (dont know how
    to call it in english) could somebody please show me how i can set a path to the exe that should be added to bootup instead of
    the curent exe that is being executed (since my "instaler" puts
    the files in another directory).
    help very apreciated !


    HKEY hkey;
    char *szBuf;
    TCHAR buff[255];
    DWORD bufflLen = 255;
    LPTSTR dirBuff = buff;

    GetCurrentDirectory(buffLen, dirBuff);
    buffLen = strlen(dirBuff);
    if(buffLen > 3)
    szBuf = strcat(dirBuff, "\\myprogram.exe");
    else
    szBuf = strcat(dirBuff, "myprogram.exe");

    RegOpenKeyEx (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, "Software\\Microsoft\\Windows\\Currentversion\\Run ", 0, KEY_SET_VALUE, &hkey);
    RegSetValueEx (hkey, "myprogram", 0, REG_SZ (LPBYTE) szBuf, strlen(szBuf) + 1);
    RegCloseKey(hkey);

    Please use code tags. That's all I'm gonna say and I think I've already told you before.
