Try this:
Const HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE = &H80000002
\Level
 
Set objReg = GetObject("winmgmts:\\.\root\default:StdRegProv")
 
objReg.GetDWordValue HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, "\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Access\Security", "Level", dwValue
 
If IsNull(dwValue) Then
    Wscript.Echo "The registry key does not exist."
Else
    Wscript.Echo "The registry key exists. (" & dwValue & ")"
