    Microsoft::Win32::RegistryKey::GetValue()

    Hey i am using microsofts visual c++ 2005 express edition beta
    and i keep getting this dum error with this function i try to compile:
    Code:
    System::Void  SetRadioValues()
    	{
    		System::String^ val = Microsoft::Win32::RegistryKey::GetValue("HKCU\\Software\\Policies\\Microsoft\\Windows\\System\\DisableCMD");
    		
    	}
    the line "System::String^ val = Microsoft::Win32::RegistryKey::GetValue("HKCU\\Sof tware\\Policies\\Microsoft\\Windows\\System\\Disab leCMD");"

    is what gives me the trouble, i get this error:
    error C2352: 'Microsoft::Win32::RegistryKey::GetValue' : illegal call of non-static member function
    c:\windows\microsoft.net\framework\v2.0.50215\msco rlib.dll : see declaration of 'Microsoft::Win32::RegistryKey::GetValue'

    so am i not setting it up right or something if some one could plz show me how to set this up right so i can get the value of that key that be great thx.

    The GetValue function is not static. You need an instance of type Microsoft::Win32::RegistryKey to call this function.

    Microsoft::Win32::RegistryKey* key = Microsoft::Win32::Registry::CurrentUser.OpenSubKey ( "Software\\Policies\\Microsoft\\Windows\\Syst em\\DisableCMD" );

    System::Object* result = key->GetValue( "keyname" );

    The key does not exist on my machine, so I cannot tell what the keyname should be.

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    you seem to be using alot of '::'s which means youre referring to class that has been made in a class that has been made in a class and that has been made be a class. how would this be correct?

    like this:
    Code:
    #include<iostream>
    
    namespace look
    {
            namespace at
            {
                    namespace how
                    {
                            namespace you
                            {
                                    namespace can
                                    {
                                            namespace nest
                                            {

    Look at how you can assign a text string as a pointer's address and not have the compiler give you an error.
