Reading from and Writing to the Registry (Visual Basic)
Lists task and conceptual topics associated with the registry.
When programming in Visual Basic 2005, you can choose to access the registry by means of either the functions provided by Visual Basic 2005 or the registry classes of the .NET Framework. The registry hosts information from the operating system as well as information from applications hosted on the machine. Working with the registry may compromise security by allowing inappropriate access to system resources or protected information.
