This section tackled the often-difficult subject of the registry. Acting as a repository for the COM+ server information, it is an important topic to understand if you want to develop component applications.

A special class was presented that gives you an easy way to access the registry without having to rely on some of the more limiting API calls. This class was shown along with its use.

You also saw how to use Regedit and RegEdt32 in your quest to learn, understand, and edit the registry.
