you can use

    Dim objWSH As Object    
    Set objWSH = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
    objWSH.RegWrite "HKLM\Software\MyApplication\strValue", "Some string value"

you also can use the
GetSetting, SaveSetting functions:
GetSetting(appname, section, key[, default])
but they are linited to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER key, sufficient for your request
