I need to get all the sub-entries from an entry in the registry.
Example:
In my "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Word.RTF.8\shell", the sub-entries is:
-New
-open
-print
-printto
-VirusScan

But I need to get(find/extract) them using code. How do I do that?

'to get registry keys use:
Declare Function RegEnumKeyEx Lib "advapi32.dll" _
    Alias "RegEnumKeyExA" (ByVal hKey As Long, _
    ByVal dwIndex As Long, ByVal lpName As String, _
    ByVal cbName As Long) As Long

'to get values use:
Declare Function RegEnumValue Lib "advapi32.dll" _
    Alias "RegEnumValueA" (ByVal hKey As Long, _
