The new Properties API in JDK 1.4.1 writes all the properties to the windows registry. That seems the easiest way to me. There is a great tutorial/article in the September newsletter.

Hi,
Thanks for the reply, but preference object seems to be good for storing information in the registry and reading that information, but what i need is to read existing information from the registry.. basically i need to know where a particular software is installed.. any suggestions for the same??
Thanks a lot again..
Cheers!!
