I had visio installed and afer an unistall it leaves few registry entries behind. I wanted to clean the same up using a script. I had used vb script and windows scripts a long time back and have forgotten.

I am using the below script. When I do so i am getting an error "Invalid root in registry key " at Line 6 char 1 . Error code is 800700003; Source is WshShell.RegDelete.

Can anyone please help...

Dim WshShell , cal1
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
cal1 = "\HKLM\SOFTWARE\classes\.vst\"
WScript.echo "xxxxxxxx: " & Cal1
WshShell.RegDelete cal1
