    well you could use .ini files or maybe create and write to HKLM/Software/yourname in the registry.
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!
    And the FAQ is here :- http://faq.cprogramming.com/cgi-bin/smartfaq.cgi

    Just write them to file or the registry, and then load them up again when your app starts up.

    Reading the faq should get you started:

    How do I...work with files (c).
    How do I...work with files (c++).

    If you prefer a winapi approach then check out msdn:file management functions.

    For the registry - msdn: registry.

    Ken, Stoner asked said to write to registry or .ini files, is there a reason why .ini files instead of .txt files ?
