Excuse me?!<BR><BR>You want to "automatically" modify the client's registry when they click a link?!<BR><BR>No way. Think of the security risks involved! If you link to a registry file (.reg), the user will be prompted whether they want to "run" it or not - that's about the best you can do.<BR><BR>Craig.
Yup. This will be used in an Intranet e-Training site. Students who finished watching the tracked videos are asked to fill-up an online self assessment form. What my client wants to do is when a students clicks the link to the form, the registry file opens, student clicks 'Yes' he wants to open the file, and then registry file is run. The file registers to the machine that the student finished watching the videos (honestly I don't know the codes in the registry but that's what the client says).
What if two students use the same machine?<BR><BR>Hmm, ok. I'm not convinced that this is going to cause you problems. Don't you think what you really want is a database to track the student's progress, rather than track the SYSTEM's progress?<BR><BR>I know it's what the client asked for, but it's our job as professionals to point out other solutions and possible pitfalls of their "solutions".<BR><BR>Craig.
