To use these properties, you must have Read and Write permission from the RegistryPermissionAccess Enumeration. Any code running with full trust (under the default security policy, this is any code installed on the user's local hard drive) has the necessary permissions to access the registry. For more information, see RegistryPermission Class.

The following table lists examples of tasks involving the My.Computer.Registry object.

This example reads the value Name from HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MyApp and displays it in a message box.

Dim readValue As Object
        readValue = My.Computer.Registry.GetValue _
        ("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MyApp", "Name", Nothing)
        MsgBox("The value is " & CStr(readValue))
