Need to write a program that when given the path of registry key it will extract the permissions of the key and display them in user understandable format. For example:

    Administrator          Full Control
    Creator/Owner          Full Control
    Users                  Read

Any pointers will be appreciated.

Perhaps a look at this CP article may help you (by the way it appears there is no Part 2 to it...)

Have a look at the Microsoft sample located here:

ATLSecurity Sample: Demonstrates ATL Security Classes[^]

I took a brief look at the source code and it appears to be exactly what you are looking for.

Best Wishes,
