When i try to get the value from Current_user registry settings the below code is fine on my window7 machine.

regKey = Microsoft.Win32.Registry.CurrentUser.OpenSubKey("Software\PTS Tools", True)-OK

But if i use same code for LOCAL_MACHINE it is not working and  it is giving error that SecurityException was un handled

regKey = Microsoft.Win32.Registry.LocalMachine.OpenSubKey("Software\PTS Tools", True)-Not OK

Can you please provide the solution to read LOCAL_MACHINE registries using VB.Net
