Is it possible somehow to read this value from the registry or
from the files somehow?

    1. I think this is stored in the FAT, not the registry.
    2. Your question is confusing.  The title is Add/Remove program usage stats but the text of your question is reading the stats.
    3. Why would you want to do this?

    I'm not sure of the answer, but I think I can help clarify the question.

    When you select add/remove programs on windows XP (and maybe 2K.. I can't remember) it will say how often the application is used (rarely, often, etc..)
