i want to modify the SAM database in the registry directly.
the key is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Security\SAM\Domains\Account\Users
and then i have all the users RID, and i know how to modify the V records
thanks to the pwdump samba program.
ok, my problem is, i can't get the right permissions i need in the call to
RegOpenKeyEx to be able to set the V value.
i tried KEY_SET_VALUE but it tells that i can't open it.
i also did this, i used regedt32 and i gave to the Administrators group FULL
CONTROL to the whole key tree, but in my program, i still CAN'T modify the
suppose i want to modify
that is a user's rid, inside that key is a F value and a V value.
now, i try to open the key with RegOpenKeyEx and with the access set to
KEY_SET_VALUE among other permissions, and i can't open the damn key.
why? if i use regedt32 and i try to change it by hand i can do it, why can't
i do it in coding?
thanks in advance .
