I've looked over the Help topics for this and it appears that I'm doing it right, but maybe the syntax has changed or it's done differently in 10.7.

We want to get the value of some registry keys and, if needed, change them. This is all pertaining to auto-logons.

The step I have is this:

Get all values of registry key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\\DefaultUserName" and store into dataset dsUserName

This is just some testing to verify that we're able to retrieve the information, so I'm just getting the information of the local machine. However, it generates the error:

Registry key [REGKEY] does not exist.

I'm fairly certain it's not a permissions issues, as this is my local machine and I can access and change the values of the key I'm testing.

Do I have the syntax wrong? Or am I missing something else?

Also, if we want to get the registry key(s) of remote machines, how would we write that? Would it be \\[REMOTEMACHINE]\[REGKEY]?

Thank you in advance for any information you can provide on this.
