Reading mobile device registry value with .NET Compact Framework ?

I am pretty new to mobile device development and I have been looking into accessing registry key values on Windows CE / Mobile devices. Currently it is only reading values that I have already set from a desktop PC using RAPI that I'm looking to do but I cannot yet uncover a definitive answer to the following ...
  Can I read registry key values on devices using only the .NET compact framework ? There doesn't appear to be a class/way to do this.
  If the answer to the above is no, is the only solution to go with the OpenNetCF ? or are there other less 'heavy' solutions to simply just read a registry value ?

    Accepted Solution

    The compact framework does not have a Registry Class which means RAPI or the OpenNetCf are your only options.
