Registry database updating

If I change registry database contents by using functions like RegSetValue what should I do to force changes take effect. I tried RegFlushKey with one of predefined reserved handle values (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE) as an argument, but there was no effect.

The data will be stored in the registry after you either do a RegCloseKey on the key you have open for write, or after you call the RegFlush or RegFlushKey.  Now if you question has to do with applications that use values stored in the registry, then there is no good answer.  Each application reads it's data from the registry when it was designed to.

Can you please explain why you believe that the answer above is wrong?  I continue to stand behind it.
