If you can navigate in the Windows registry (no modifying required), then I ask of your assistance. I need information for the following games (any you can provide information for is welcomed!): Asheron's Call 1 & 2, Auto Assault, City of Heroes/Villains, Dark Age of Camelot, Dungeons & Dragons, E.V.E Online, Everquest 1 & 2, Final Fantasy XI, Guild Wars, or Lineage 1 & 2. I need to know where in the registry these games are located, what the value name is for the installation path, and what executable is used to start the actual game. (You may also provide what commandline parameters may be used with the game, if the game stores your account name already, etc...) Example: Game: Diablo II Install Path: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Blizzard Entertainment\Diablo II\InstallPath Executable: Diablo II.exe Command Line Parameters: -w (windowed mode), -skiptobnet (skips intro screen and takes you to login prompt.) More: Stores last accessed account name I need this information for an application I am writing. This application allows a user to save his/her account details securely, encrypted with commercial encryption using hardware fingerprint generated keys (25 characters). At any time, the user may log in to his/her account (faster than you can, for those curious.). This system is to prevent against key loggers, mouse capturing software, etc, which try to steal private information from you. These programs can be obtained unknowingly, or when you download a 3rd party application for a game (maphacks, map creators, save-game editors, etc.). I am aware that this application may violate Terms of Service agreements with most, if not all, of the games. However, the application exits once you're logged in, and it is a use-at-your-own-risk application. This is the last of information I need in order to complete the application, any help would be greatly apperciated! Thankyou for your time.:)

Why not buy the games? They're all not that new, so you should pick them up cheaply. If you're writing something like that using commercial encryption, surely you have a budget to work with?
If not, then an email to the developers would probably provide more information than us, especially if it's involving the registry.
My apologies for posting in the wrong forum. :) Reven, they're of no use to me other than for their locations in the registry, so I'd rather not purchase the games. ;) I wrote this post on a wim, hoping for a few replies. Thanks guys.
