We have a dll that we use to read HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\GGPL\Myriad and this is working fine under SQL Server 2008 R2 on Windows 7, I also have SQL Server 2005 SP4 installed and the same dll does not work. When I do a Registry.LocalMachine.OpenSubKey("SOFTWARE\\GGPL\\Myriad", False) it returns nothing.
I can get to SOFTWARE ok but any deeper and I have a problem, both instances of SQL Server are running under the same user.
I have a similar problem at a client site that is running SQL Server 2005 on Windows Server 2008 R2 and I'm trying to fix the problem when I managed to replicate the problem on my own machine.

I think you may have mis understood my original post and I did not give a full history.
We have the App working on SQL Server 2005 at several clients including some running Server 2008 R2, but it does not work on my Windows 7 machine or a particular client running Windows Server 2008 R2. It is the same App that we are using, but this App works in SQL Server 2008 R2.
I need to work out what the difference is between SQL 2005 and 2008 R2 that is causing the problems.

By dll do you mean the code for it or the actual dll itself.

That is why I am saying referencing the vendor itself is preferable choice here to seek computability sheet with SQL Server editions to narrow down error scope as Iric asked for also
