You should look at the MSDN at msdn.microsoft.com/library. The important functions are RegOpenKey, RegCloseKey, RegQueryValueEx, and RegSetValueEx.

I made a program that stores its window position in the Registry. Each time your run the program, its window appears in the same place as when you closed the program last.

Go to http://tamale.net/Windows.html and download OutputServer. Look in OutputServerRoutines.cpp for the ReadRegistry() and WriteRegistry() functions. The program uses several Win32 API functions:

RegCreateKeyEx() to create or open a key
RegQueryValueEx() to read information
RegSetValueEx() to write information
RegCloseKey() to close the key
