Hello all,

I am trying to delete a registry key that is under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\  using My.Computer.Registry.CurrentUser.DeleteSubKey(mykey) but it doesn't work.
Any ideas?

It could be a permission issue. Does it work if you run the app as admin?

I think the problem is caused because I'm setting the wrong path because I get an error "No value exists with that name." The path is specified above and the entry exists.
Any ideas how to set the path correctly?

I found the error. It was because I was using the "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\" in my path, and also because I was trying to delete subkeys instead of values.
