Edit Reg_binary with VBScript?

Hello,
I'm looking for a simple VBScript to edit a REG_BINARY registry value. Please note that I'd like to edit an existing value, I don't need to create a new value.
Thanks in advance!

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Basically, you'll need to read the current value, insert your new portion, and rewrite the entire value...

const HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE = &H80000002
strComputer = "."
Set StdOut = WScript.StdOut
 
Set oReg=GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" &_ 
strComputer & "\root\default:StdRegProv")
 
strKeyPath = "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion"
strValueName = "LicenseInfo"
oReg.GetBinaryValue HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE,strKeyPath,_
strValueName,strValue
 
 
For i = lBound(strValue) to uBound(strValue)
    StdOut.WriteLine  strValue(i)

Thanks!
One question, Though:
const HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE = &H80000002
What if I need to read HKEY_CURRENT_USER without the root/administrative access?
Thanks in advance!
