Registry MRU Delete Entries Problem RRS feed

  • Question


    I have written a simple routine that lets me select and delete entries from the MRU list in the registry.


    But, if I delete entry "File6" then the 'Recent Projects' list in the IDE will only show files 'File1' thru 'File5'

    If I delete 'File1' then the 'Recent Projects' entry does not even appear.


    Apparently, the "File?" numbers MUST be in sequence.


    In RegEdit, I can "RENAME" the files. But, as far as I can tell, neither MY. or Win32 have a "RENAME" capability.


    Will I have to 'READ' in all the values from the registry, renumber them manually, delete ALL existing values, and

    rewrite the corrected values ?


    Any other ideas ?
