Registry Value Types

A registry can store different types of values in various formats. These Registry Value Types are listed here. When you store data under a registry value, for instance by calling the RegSetValueEx function, you can specify one of the following values to indicate the type of data being stored. When you retrieve a registry value, functions such as RegQueryValueEx use these values to indicate the type of data retrieved.

The following registry value types are defined in Winnt.h.
