.NET equivalent to RegLoadKey?

Hello,

I need to access the hives on an offline hard drive.  Normally, I'd use RegLoadKey with the path to the hive on the offline hard drive, but I'd like to use the .NET Registry and RegistryKey classes.  Unfortunately, they do not seem to support accessing the offline registry files on another hard drive...  Is that true?  If not, could you please tell me which class and method to use?

Thanks,

Mike

After more research, I've discovered that it is not possible in .NET.
