VBA Code - how to create an entry to registry & write to it and rea

  Asked By: Jaymz    Date: Oct 20    Category: MS Office    Views: 2194
  

For a particular Excel Application, I would like to write to the registry
by adding a brand new data item, and write to this data item of data.
Then, later on retrieve(read) from this data item and do a comparison on the
data.
Does anybody know how to do this VBA code to the registry ?

Check out the GetSetting and SaveSetting commands in the VBA help.
These refer to a specific place in the registry.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/VB and VBA Program Settings/.

I included both the SaveSetting(VBA) and
GetSetting(VBA) in my Excel Application.

Have you or anybody tried anything w/"Virtual Machine Software" ?
I understand VMWare has several really good "virtualization" software
that will allow you do on a single computer, to test applications with
multiple operating systems; each one having a virtual machine.

I think what you can do with VMWare's Workstation 5.5
and with VMWare's Player, is to configure your computer
to not only have WINXP as the Host OS. You can also
have VMWare Sever as a virtual machine.
Which means, the application  from the WINXP
virtual machine can communicate with
2005 MS SQL Server OS via (queries) in its own
virtual machine.

Why use VMWare when you can use the MS product instead?
