If the function succeeds, the return value is ERROR_SUCCESS.
If the function fails, the return value is a nonzero error code defined in WINERROR.H. You can use the FormatMessage function with the FORMAT_MESSAGE_FROM_SYSTEM flag to get a generic description of the error.
If the function succeeds, RegDeleteKey removes the specified key from the registry. The entire key, including all of its values, is removed.
To open the key, use the RegCreateKeyEx or RegOpenKeyEx function. Do not use the RegCreateKey or RegOpenKey functions.
