sure you can - from the help file:

Following are the functions used with the registry:

RegCloseKey
RegConnectRegistry
RegCreateKey
RegCreateKeyEx
RegDeleteKey
RegDeleteValue
RegEnumKey
RegEnumKeyEx
RegEnumValue
RegFlushKey
RegGetKeySecurity
RegLoadKey
RegNotifyChangeKeyValue
RegOpenKey
RegOpenKeyEx
RegQueryInfoKey
RegQueryValue
RegQueryValueEx
RegReplaceKey
RegRestoreKey
RegSaveKey
RegSetKeySecurity
RegSetValue
RegSetValueEx
RegUnLoadKey

one example:

The RegSetValueEx function stores data in the value field of an open registry key. It can also set additional value and type information for the specified key.

LONG RegSetValueEx(

    HKEY  hKey,      // handle of key to set value for  
    LPCTSTR  lpValueName,      // address of value to set
    DWORD  Reserved,      // reserved
    DWORD  dwType,      // flag for value type
    CONST BYTE *  lpData,      // address of value data
    DWORD  cbData       // size of value data
   );
