Deleting registry key data value?

Hi All,

How do I delete the registry key data value within vb6?

My Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ABBYY\FREngine\5.0\License

Name: Agreement
Type: REG_SZ
Data: IGMGBOGEBB....

What is the function for this? Do I need to add any references to access the registry?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi aljubicic,
You'll need to use the ADVAPI to do this, you'll find the API declarations in my post here:
