Question

I've migrated an ASP.NET web application from Server 2003(x86) to a Windows 7(x64) machine. The web application cannot find registry values that were stored under:

SOFTWARE\SomeApplicationName\SubLocation\SubLocation2

being accesed through the Registry.LocalMachine.OpenSubKey api located in the Microsoft.Win32 namespace.

My question is: Where do I need to place these values for the ASP.NET web app to access them from the Windows 7 registry? The web application is hosted in IIS7

Was it helpful?

Solution

I placed the registry setting in the same path under the 64bit registry on the machine.

OTHER TIPS

Please learn about registry under WOW64,
