How to remove a section from an INI file using Win32 API?

I would like to remove a section and also key values under the section from an INI file using Win32 API.

Can somebody tell me how can I do that?

Answer

To delete the section and all the entries you will use the somewhat counter-intuitive named function WritePrivateProfileString with the lpKeyName parameter set to NULL. This will delete the entire section stored in the lpAppName field, including all the entries.
