I am trying to access a registry key from VB.NET and webapp using the code below...

I am not sure whether it is a security issue or what but i am not able to retreive this value..

Dim rk As RegistryKey = Registry.CurrentUser.OpenSubKey("Software\America Online\AOL Instant Messenger (TM)\CurrentVersion\Location")
Dim objValue As Object
Dim strValue As String

If Not (rk Is Nothing) Then
  objValue = rk.GetValue("ZipCode")
       If Not (objValue Is Nothing) Then
          strValue = CType(objValue, String)
          TextBox1.Text = strValue
       End If
End If
