Reading the window registry with a Arduino

how would i be able to read the registry?

because the values stored are ASCII would this work http://arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/TextString

could i have a example?

First of all Arduino can not read anything on a PC.

Arduino does not know anything about files.

GoBetwino: http://mikmo.dk/gobetwino.html can maybee help you, but the registry on Windows PC’s is a binary file, that is not easy to read without the windows program regedit.
