I see that I'm supposed to use "SetDWORDValue" or something similar, but I'm not seeing a solution which explicitly stores data to the specified HKEY. Do I need to set it up somewhere else? Is it not necessary?
There are a ton of these 'superseded' commands to update, I'm not completely sure how to translate them into the new commands.
Thanks for your help! I really appreciate it.

Just look for the appropriate overloaded CRegKey method in msdn.
You should be very careful with writing to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. It is not allowed for users withot Admin rights.

Thank you for the advice VictorN - this software comes pre-installed on computers so the users are setup with admin rights. It's a necessary evil.
I can about put a button on a panel and make it do a simple task. I'm *very* new to this. The idea was that updating this existing software would be a good way to learn...
Thank you Arjay. I found this previously: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/s.../xka57xy4.aspx and tried to match what SetValue did - but didn't find anything with matching parameters including the hKeyParent except maybe CSettingsStore if I can/should use it in conjunction with something else?
I feel a bit stupid for not being able to extrapolate this to a new command, but I seem to just be going in circles. Can anyone help with a specific example?
Maybe I should have specified that
Again, thank you all for your patient help and advice!
