setregistry. Is it a bug ?

Is this on Vista? Apparently, you just can't do this as a power user.  
You have to be logged in as an administrator.

Another possibility is that the path to the key already exists in the  
administrator's account, because you have been testing it. It is a  
long shot, but try creating each branch of the path separately. Make  
\Uninstall first and then \Uninstall\tototest.

I wonder if it is possible to write a VB or COM file that can log in  
as admin and set the regsitry keys.

Best regards,
