public enum class RegistryOptions

Member nameDescription
None

A non-volatile key. This is the default.

Volatile

A volatile key. The information is stored in memory and is not preserved when the corresponding registry hive is unloaded.

You can create a registry key that is available only in memory and that will not be persisted when the computer is restarted. This is known as a volatile key. You can specify that you want to create a volatile or non-volatile key by using the RegistryKey::CreateSubKey method overloads that take an options parameter.
