    Thanks, but that's because my site is currently offline. I have
    been making MAJOR recoding to the programs that I release to
    the General Public. Therefore, I have deleted all the files
    on the site, and will start over. However, since it returns
    an Error 404, that means it can't find the INDEX.HTML, so, I
    must've deleted that, too.

    I'll post my backup copy of the INDEX to the site, and
    annotate it to the effect that the site is currently under
    construction and will be fully operational on such-and-such
    a date.

    Thanks for the heads up, Lance!

    Clay, JFYI, your URL in your sig line returns an Error 404 (not found).

    Disregard my previous message! This time,a s far as setting
    the (Default) values, I turned to MSDN Library - January 2000
    for info on RegSetValueEx...that was where I learned that, to
    read or set the (Default) value in a key in the Registry, you
    use a null string for the value name. I have tested that, and
    it is indeed true.

    So, I am now going to write my CD autorunning toggling program!

    Many thanks, Sven! I downloaded regmon per your suggestion,
    ran it, and IMMEDIATELY found out where the Registry key was that
    controls the autorunning of audio CD's! I have determined,
    through empirical testing, that the flag I found for data CD's
    is the correct one.

    So, there's now no need for you to look through your old
    source codes for the program you wrote. Thanks, anyway, though.


    Now, that brings up some questions that I haven't been able to
    figure out on my own. First: how do I change the (Default)
    value in a Registry key using RegSetValueEx()? I've tried a
    number of different settings for the value name, to no avail.
    Also, do I use REG_SZ for the data type for that value? Also,
    how do I read the value data for that value using
    RegQueryValueEx()?

    If you can answer these questions, I shall immediately begin
    writing my own CD autorunning toggling program.

    Thanks, again, Sven!

    I'll look in my Sources. I've written such a Program some Time ago.

    Hint: You can analyze the modifications, "StepUp" does with RegMon from sysinternals.com

    OK, I found *ONE* flag, and I think it's the only one for
    autorunning CD's that Win98 SE uses. Apparently, StepUp has a
    "hook" into the autorunning process, so it can selectively
    autorun audio and/or data CD's. I'm going to do further
    experimenting with the flag I found to see if I can write my
    own program to toggle the autorun status on/off. Unfortunately,
    I don't know enough about 32-bit Windows programming to be able
    to write it so it can selectively autorun audio and/or data CD's.

    started a topic Where are CD-ROM autorun flags?

    Where are CD-ROM autorun flags?

    Does anybody know where Win98 SE stores the info on whether to
    autorun data and audio CD's? I am a licensed user of StepUp98,
    and can use its CD enable/disable facilities, BUT, I'd rather
    write my own program that does the same thing, so I don't have
    to install the whole StepUp software just to use that feature.

    I've done a search in my Registry for "autorun", and the only
    key that I found that held potential, the value data in it
    didn't change when I used StepUp to change the data autorun's
    status. So, Windows must keep the info elsewhere.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance!
