Re: [PLUG] Config Files and Steam Engines

Could you please explain how the Windows registry enforces standard syntax?
If you mean typing, well, you can put anything into a REG_SZ (and many apps
do).  Now what?

One app from Adobe (just as an example) has a date in a REG_SZ, and a name in
another, and an INTEGER(!!!) in another.

Sorry, but the registry is not a good example of improving on standards.
Apparently nothing from Microsoft is.
