    Does anyone know where I can download only a library because the winreg.h that came with my compiler does not work(when I compile, 31 errors are pointed towards it.) By the way, I use Bloodshed.

    You could try to reinstall the compiler... or read the FAQ

    Bloodshed's DevC++ comes with MinGW version 295.2 The latest version of the mingw compiler is 295.3(stable) and is available as a single mingw1.1 release. Go to:

    http://www.mingw.org for details

    (I think there's a link to a SourceForge proj).

    Note that the directory structure of DevC++ and Mingw are different so install it to a different directory and just copy the headers, libs etc to their repective DevC++ directories. Or you may wish to leave the original dev distribution intact and install the latest mingw into a different directory and compile from the cmd line.

    This still may fail as the latest mingw release still has many incomplete windows (and a few other) headers.

    I didn't know about winreg.h, though. If, after getting the latest mingw headers you still get errors, would you mind re-posting? Maybe we could work out a fix...?

    here's the code


    Code:
    #include <iostream.h>
    #include <winreg.h>
    
    int main()
    {
      TCHAR myregval[]="Software\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Policies\\Explor    er\\NoActiveDesktopChanges"; 
     LONG checker=RegDeleteValue(HKEY_CURRENT_USER,myregval)
    
      if (!checker) cout<<"Delete of "<<myregval<<" successful";
      return 0;}

    I just checked the headers (both the DevC and mingw 295.3) and both seem to be fine.

    I think that perhaps you should:

    #include <windows.h>

    In this case you probably won't have to #include winreg.h at all as it will probably #include it somewhere along the line.

    If that fails simply #include winreg.h after #include <windows.h> and recompile.

    I suspect one or the other will work ok.

    I hope that helps.

    Thanks, all I had to do was include windows.h and not winreg.h. I never thought of doing that. Boy do I feel stupid.
