Delete HKCR key
Is there a special way to remove a reg key from classes root? I have a script that works fine when removing keys from HKLM but it fails to delete a key in HKCR. The first two entries are deleted every time but the third errors saying 'Unable to remove registry key' 80070002. I can remove the key using regedit so it's not being held open.
On Error Resume Next
Dim WshShell, bKey
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
set WSHSHell = Nothing

but I think HKCR should work (HKCR is just an alias to the "real" location)
Error 0x80070002 means "not found" so are you sure of the spelling??

Sorted it, I needed a trailing slash at the end to delete subkeys.
