I thought this was simple so i guess i am doing something wrong.
I want to read the value of an item in the registry.
the value im after is the centralprofile key which im trying to get by passing the SID and looking up the subkey but it never returns anything.
Function getprofilepath(ByVal SID As String) As String Try regKey = Registry.LocalMachine.OpenSubKey("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList\" & SID, False) If Not regKey Is Nothing Then Return CType(regKey.GetValue("CentralProfile"), String) End If Catch ex As Exception End Try Return "" End Function
I know that the SID being passed is correct so any thoughts are appreciated.
