I have an application that reads some registry values. The app works fine in an Administrator account but when tried in an ordinary user account (limited), my app failed cause it can't read the registry anymore. It just gave me nothing, no errors received.

Btw, I am using the Registry classes of .NET. I have tried the permission but it didnt work.

Can someone give me a working sample? Thanks!

Yes. Does it matter? Here's the snippet.
Dim reg As RegistryKey = Me.GetRegKey(Me.pvtClassKey)
reg = reg.OpenSubKey(Me.pvtSectionKey, True)
ret = reg.GetValue(Me.pvtValueKey, "")
