    #include <windows.h>
    #include <string>
    	static int INI_BUFFER_SIZE = 512;
    	string section = "Section Name";
    	string key = "Key Name";
    	string def = "Value if Key is not Found";
    	string file = "Path to the INI file.";
    	char* temp = new char[INI_BUFFER_SIZE];
    	GetPrivateProfileString( section.c_str(), key.c_str(), def.c_str(), temp, INI_BUFFER_SIZE, file.c_str());
    	//temp contains the value from the ini file, do something with it.
    	delete [] temp;
    MSDN contains a good description of the function.

    You could allways write your own text parser to read the info.

    Is this by any chance for Diablo II? (sorry for the off-topic post) If it is I think root's bot is open source now (I could be wrong) - have a look at that.
