1)Application checks if registry key exists – “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\<Interface GUID>\tcpAckFrequency”  the interface GUID is known by there being a key for DHCPipAddress key with a value other than nothing (doesn’t exist) or 0.0.0.0.
2)If not add a Dword(32bit) key called TcpAckFrequency as a hex value "1"


PLease see the above requirement and provide the sample code if you have.

You have to 3 operations
1. Reading registry
2. Changing value of key
3. Adding a new registry

sample code for all the three operations can be found from the following link

Below code is giving error as "Requested registry access is not allowed."


reg = Registry.LocalMachine.OpenSubKey("SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\{03CBA9E5-BAC9-48B4-834B-3BBA552236E7}", True)
            Dim strKey As String
            strKey = reg.GetValue("AddressType")


Please provide the solution

Thanks
