Answers

  • Hi Srinivas Akella,

    Thank you for your clarification. And sorry for delay.

    This forum is for the support of .NET Framework installation. I would suggest you to try Visual C# General forum to get more useful help there since your concern is related to C# programming.

    Hope this helps!

    Best regards,

  • Hi Srinivas Akella,

    Thank you for your post.

    Some clarification with you:
    What kind of project are you developing now? VB project, C# project or others?
    Why do you want to access x64 registry keys from your x86 application?

    For your concern, I would suggest you to read the following two links:
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms724072%28VS.85%29.aspx
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa384129%28VS.85%29.aspx

    We can change some flags to enable 32-bit applications to access redirected keys in the 64-bit registry view.

    Hope this helps! If you have any concern, please feel free to let me know.

    Best regards,
    Yichun Chen

  • Thanks Yichun,

    I am using C# project only. I would prefer to use C#/Win32 APIs than WMI.

    Thanks,

    Srinivas
