RegistryPermissionAccess Enumeration

Specifies the permitted access to registry keys and values.

This enumeration has a FlagsAttribute attribute that allows a bitwise combination of its member values.

Namespace:  System.Security.Permissions
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public enum RegistryPermissionAccess

Member nameDescription
AllAccessCreate, Read, and Write access to registry variables. AllAccess represents multiple RegistryPermissionAccess values and causes an ArgumentException when used as the access parameter for the GetPathList method, which expects a single value.
CreateCreate access to registry variables.
NoAccessNo access to registry variables. NoAccess represents no valid RegistryPermissionAccess values and causes an ArgumentException when used as the parameter for GetPathList, which expects a single value.
ReadRead access to registry variables.
WriteWrite access to registry variables.

RegistryPermissionAccess values are independent; rights to one type of access do not imply rights to another. For instance, Write permission does not imply permission to Read or Create.


Although NoAccess and AllAccess appear in RegistryPermissionAccess, they are not valid for use as the parameter for GetPathList because they describe no registry variable access types or all registry variable access types, respectively, and GetPathList expects a single registry variable access type.
