Best place to store program settings in the registry?
Posted on 2009-05-05
I'm curious as to where is the best location in the registry to store settings for a VB.NET program. We are not using the "My.Settings" for this and do not want to. The program will run under an Admin account and will do quite a bit of disk IO(reading & writing.)
One place we found on-line suggested this location: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\
Another this one: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\
What is the correct location?
Visual Studio 2008, Framework 3.5, Windows XP Pro
