HKEY constants for RegOpenKey() in VB3

What are the HKEY constants for the first parameter of RegOpenKey?  As far as I can tell, Microsoft graciously left them out of the VB3 Pro API help files and the CONSTANTS.TXT file.
Also, if the key value is known to only contain 1 entry (the default), will the Win3.1 registry API calls work OK in 95? If not, what are the caveats.

Thanks,

The only constant defined for Win3.1 registry calls is HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, whose value is 1.

If the key value contains only one entry, and this entry is the default entry, then you'll be able to read or write the value with no trouble.
