Namespace: Microsoft.Win32
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public RegistrySecurity GetAccessControl ()
public RegistrySecurity GetAccessControl ()
public function GetAccessControl () : RegistrySecurity

Return Value

A RegistrySecurity object that describes the access control permissions on the registry key represented by the current RegistryKey.

Exception typeCondition

SecurityException

This method overload is equivalent to calling the GetAccessControl(AccessControlSections) method overload with the bitwise combination of the following flags: AccessControlSections.Access, AccessControlSections.Owner, and AccessControlSections.Group. You can use that overload to search for other permissions.

The user must have RegistryRights.ReadPermissions rights to call this method.
