Get Registry Key returns Nil

This is in relation to my previous message titled "Detecting previous installation of MyApp.

I am trying to get the value stored in the name "Path" under \HKey_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppPaths\MyApp.exe and then set this to a variable MyAppPath, but no value is returned.  The registry does have the path value as C:\Program Files\MyApp.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Get Registry Key returns Nil

Are you typing in the HKey_Local_machine in the Registry Key field?  If not, please show what you are putting into the fields.
