How can I get registry key values from my ASP.NET residing on client machine but
running from my web server?

More importantly, why would you want to? What is it you are trying to do? Note that you can't access the client registry for fairly obvious reasons without some sort of control or object placed on the client machine.

Correct answer. You *could* do it, but you'd need some sort of Activex object or other type of control, then you'd have all the browser requirements to think about. Horrible really.

Back in the days of DRM protected music, I had to do some work along these lines. Became almost impossible to manage with different browsers \ os changes etc.

Anyway, my 5!
update client registry to database...if it is possible then get it from database...

You can't get to the client's registry from a web site. Period. That would be a GIANT security hole.
