Windows 10 changes in access rights for Registry.

RegOpenKeyEx(CurrentKey,
                  PChar(Subkey),
                  0, KEY_READ, key)

This function was working fine until now but has stopped working under Administrator too in Windows 10

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
