  • Hi,

    Some parts of the registry could be edited and some are could not in Desktop Bridge projects.

    "Only keys under HKLM\Software are part of the package; keys under HKCU or other parts of the registry are not. Writes to keys or values in the package are not allowed." So keys under HKEY_CURRENT_USER is not allowed to be edited.

    For more information, please refer this link:Behind the scenes of your packaged desktop application--Registry

    Best regards,
