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:
