Accessing Registry from Metro Style apps RRS feed

  • Question

  • I came to know that metro style apps cannot read from or write to registry. But there are some devices like printers which write to registry when they are connected and I need to read such values from registry from my metro style app. For eg: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USB\ etc. How can I do this from my metro app?
