C# – How to delete a registry value in C#

c++registry

I can get/set registry values using the Microsoft.Win32.Registry class. For example,

Microsoft.Win32.Registry.SetValue(
    @"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run",
    "MyApp", 
    Application.ExecutablePath);

But I can't delete any value. How do I delete a registry value?

Best Solution

To delete the value set in your question:

string keyName = @"Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run";
using (RegistryKey key = Registry.CurrentUser.OpenSubKey(keyName, true))
{
    if (key == null)
    {
        // Key doesn't exist. Do whatever you want to handle
        // this case
    }
    else
    {
        key.DeleteValue("MyApp");
    }
}

Look at the docs for Registry.CurrentUser, RegistryKey.OpenSubKey and RegistryKey.DeleteValue for more info.
