Monitor Software Installation Changes

P: n/a
Thank you in advance for any and all assistance, it is greatly appreciated.

I would like to know if there is a simple way to monitor Registry changes by
software being installed, either with or without the users permission?

Charlie,

Thank you for the freebie, but I'm looking to integrate this into an
application, so I need code samples etc...

I think you can import the win32 API and call the
RegNotifyChangeKeyValue()

If my memory serves me right (don't remember if I did that in VC++ or
VB 6 or VB .NET), it's possible to import the libraries into your code
and call the functions.

Hope that gives you a direction on what you need to do.

Best regards,

Charlie
