Default HRESULT: 0x80040153 ((REGDB_E_INVALIDVALUE))

Hi All,
I have a certain dotnet application that i am working on. when i try to launch the application, i get the following error. it has something to do with an exception that a method is throwing, and i get the following error.

Unhandled COMException, HRESULT: 0x80040153(REGDB_E_INVALIDVALUE))
where the Digit following HRESULT is a Hexadecimal code indicating the type of error that is occuring. in this context,
HRESULT: 0x80040153 corresponds to some kind of invalid value for the Registry.

Can anyone plz tell me if this is some kind of generic error, of if this is something specific to my application, and if there is any way out of this. Thanks in advance.

This is an error saying there is some invalid value in the registry. Obviously your 'certain dotnet application' reads the registry, or loads a COM dll that tries to read the registry and that registry setting is either missing or invalid.
