I am trying to add a "mydomain" registry key under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\INTERNET SETTINGS\ZONEMAP\DOMAINS
however the following code does not seem to work. Can  anyone point me in the right direction?

sComputer      = "."
sMethod            = "CreateKey"
hTree            = HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
sKey            = "SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\INTERNET SETTINGS\ZONEMAP\DOMAINS\mydomain"


Set oRegistry      = GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}//" & _
            sComputer & "/root/default:StdRegProv")

Set oMethod      = oRegistry.Methods_(sMethod)
Set oInParam      = oMethod.inParameters.SpawnInstance_()

oInParam.hDefKey       = hTree
oInParam.sSubKeyName      = sKey

Set oOutParam      = oRegistry.ExecMethod_(sMethod, oInParam)

Add this line to the top of your VBS script and it should work :)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE = &H80000002
