I created a function:

Public Sub CreateRegistrySubKey(ByVal iSubKeyName As String)
    Dim regKey As RegistryKey
    regKey = My.Computer.Registry.LocalMachine.OpenSubKey("SOFTWARE", True)
End Sub

Of course, the module has
"Imports Microsoft.Win32" in the header.

In the executable portion, I call this as:

CreateRegistrySubKey("MyNew Application")

I can't seem to get this to work correctly. It doesn't create the new subkey in the registry.

What am I doing wrong?

If your executable is 32 bits, it may fall into HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node.

That's where it was. Thanks

You're welcome.

Is there a way to "force" the subkey to be created off the root (i.e. "Software)" instead of the Wow6432Node?

Never mind. I figured it out.
