Not really. The original poster, Kevin Gleason asked in the context of
QBASIC, but he also mentioned USER.DAT and SYSTEM.DAT, which are files from
which the registry is built. Kevin's original email was vague enough to
where it triggered non-programming responses, which were useful enough.
As I mentioned, the best way to get that type of information from a program
is to use standard cross-platform APIs. If there is not an appropriate one,
then a Windows specific API. The worst case would be to try to track
through the Registry.
