That part of the registry is better not handled directly.
The SetupDi functions handle that area.

Have a look at http://www.delphi-gems.net/Controls.php for my HID component which in effect handles
Also http://www.sf.net/projects/jedi-apilib is of interest (especially the Config Manager and Setup API part).
There are some examples included.
Also feel free ask me further questions robert_marquardt att gmx dott de
