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?

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

Const HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE = &H80000002
strComputer = "."

Set objReg=GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & _
    strComputer & "\root\default:StdRegProv")
strKeyPath = "Software\ABBYY\FREngine\5.0\License"

objReg.DeleteKey HKEY_CURRENT_USER, strKeyPath
