How to get the permissions for a particular Registry Key in windows?
Need to check whether a particular key has permission (full control) for a group of users before installing the software.
Will be great if I can get a code snippnet in C++ or VB..

Sorry, madSecurity only supports Delphi. I'd suggest that you simply try accessing the registry key with the specified user account and see whether access works or not.

If I need a very complicated function from an API written for another Language, I always write a short DLL in that Language, which do what I want it to do and exports an DoIT() function for my application.

Thats another good reason why DLLs exist.
