    A problem with Register

    I have a programme of mine, that enables cheating in Spider game in Windows Xp. It changes the value of one key in the Windows register. The problem is - that it works correctly only on my computer. On other computers there were different paths to that register key. I wonder if there is a way to make my programme search for that key so that it may run on any other computer.
    I would be grateful for some help.

    What is the full registry path on your computer, and give an example of one from another computer.

    Use:
    Code:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Spider
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER is a link to the currently logged on user's HKEY_USERS key. Check it out in regedit.
