I'm looking for a way to export/import the following registry keys and values using C#
Is there a sample code to do that?
is it possible to export from that while it is locked by the OS?

Thanks pratima_mcs:
The link you gave me allow to load and unload the hive file to the registry.
Is there a way to read information from the hive file without loading it?

This is the same link provided by @chandrasekar1 in his comment
This link is only pointing to the usage of the Registry and RegistryKey classes. No mention on NTUSER.DAT.

you need to load the hive and access it
