I found this about the GetSetting function:
If any of the items named in the GetSetting arguments do not exist, GetSetting returns a value of Default.
Because it operates under the HKEY_LOCAL_USER registry key, which is not active until a user logs on interactively, GetSettingrequires that a user be logged on.
Registry settings that are to be accessed from a non-interactive process (such as Mtx.exe) should be stored under either the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\ or the HKEY_USER\DEFAULT\Software registry keys.
So, if the key you're requesting isn't in HKEY_LOCAL_USER, you won't find it.
You could try using the Windows API to read the value. You can find info about how to do it in VBA here:
