    Help with Registry at startup

    Hi! Quick question, I'm trying to set a reg key for Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run but i keep getting an error message saying access is denied. I read somewhere a while back that windows 10 uses a new reg key for handling apps at startup, something like system64WOWso i guess my question is can anyone help me out??

    Values stored within HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE affect all users, so your program requires Admin permissions to set them.

    If you use the CURRENT USER hive instead, that should get rid of the error.
