Where in the registry does the following goes?

Does anyone know where in the registry the following goes?
WriteProfileString("windows", "Device", DeviceLine)

Or where this comes from?

GetProfileString("PrinterPorts", vbNullString, "", ProfileString,
Len(ProfileString))

Or where this goes?

In Start/Printer and Faxes/File/Server Properties/Forms/Create a new form
I've been searching the registry trying to find matches so I can figure it
out but there are so many matches that I can be conclusive.
Thanks for any info

Hi,

According to MSDN this is stored in win.ini file and it's just for
compatibility with 16 bits windows

maybe more details can help to give you a better answer.

I don't believe they are in that file. I've looked.
I believe the functions gets mapped to the registry.

thanks
