In my VB6 appliction I used function RegSetValueEx from "advapi32.dll" for Open Registry Key and got successfull result.
But when I try to use this function in VB.NET I failed, instead of return value equal to 0  I get strange huge number.

What is wrong? Can I use advapi32 in VB.NET or I need use something else ?
