I want to use the following to set the value of a name/value pair in the Windows XP registry:

registry.setvalue(basekeyname, keyName, Keyvalue)

How do I declare  Keyvalue in visual basic so that it ends up as type REG_BINARY in the registry.

I've tried the following  declaration but  the value shows up as type REG_SZ in the registry:

dim Keyvalue as byte = 0

thanks, Jim
