Post subject:  Windows registry

I have code working that gets a specific registry location... and its default value.

For example to get a specific key I might access the default value from:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MyCompanyName\MyAppName\AKEY

But in one case on the RIGHT SIDE in regedit... where the default is located... I had used that to store the Title and Path to most recently used files that were opened by the app.

So at this location:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MyCompanyName\MyAppName\MRU

Under there is Title1, Title2, etc.

If I try areg = areg.Child("Title1") then I get a RegistryAccessException.

I don't think Child is the right way to get those values.

Ideas?

Child is for the subfolders on the left. Value is for the entries on the right.

somevalue = areg.Value("Title1")
