Hi Alain,

If you already have the .NET 1.1 framework installed on your computer then 
you can download the Squeak.NET <http://Squeak.NET> bridge (available on 
SqueakMap) and at such time you know have access to over 3800 base class 
items exposed in the .NET framework by Microsoft. Of course, there are 
registry classes in the Microsoft.Win32 namespace. Here's some sample code:

localMachine := DotNet Registry LocalMachine.
software := localMachine openSubKey: 'Software'.
software subKeyCount -> 75

It's easy to have a complicated idea. It's very very hard to have a simple
