Your question might be better asked in a group dedicated to Windows (VB) programming.

VB 6.0 has very limited Windows registry access, restricted to a small subset of the registry that is specific to the application. SaveSetting, GetSetting, DeleteSetting. Working around this limitation requires Windows API calls. The book "Visual Basic Annotated Archives" has an explanation of the process. The .Net version of VB makes it very easy to access the registry by comparison.
