    get registry value

    right - I have the directory to my ogre app stored in

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER/ Software/myAppName

    how do I make my app read it? I've tried searching the RegGetValue but couldn't get it to work/ understand how it works.

    What does your code look like currently?
    First you need to call RegOpenKeyEx() then RegGetValue() and RegCloseKey() when you're done.
