To be honest, you shouldn't really be using the Registry at all - access to it is going to get more restrictive rather than less as OS's advance.

There are other ways to store info, particularly paths to DB that don't require the registry - here is the one I use: Instance Storage - A Simple Way to Share Configuration Data among Applications[^]
I created it because I have multiple apps which need access to the same DB server and when I changed PC name I had to update loads of different apps. Now, they all use the same data on each machine and it's a single change on each PC to get the connection string. It may be a little overkill for you situation, but It's made my life a load easier!
