Windows 7: how get notepad++ path from windows registry

how get notepad++ path from windows registry

Registry.LocalMachine.OpenSubKey will not work because there is no subkey.
However there is an entry called Default with the path in it under notepad++.

How get the program's path from the Default value under notepad++?


below calls do not work -- or maybe I am doing something wrong

Dim pRegKey As RegistryKey = Registry.LocalMachine.
OpenSubKey
(
"SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\notepad++)

Dim pRegKey As RegistryKey = Registry.LocalMachine.
GetValue
(
"SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\notepad++)

When exported the .reg file contains the '@=' (without the quotes) which I don't understand.

Thanks in advance.
