I once made a method like this...
private string GetLastPath()
    RegistryKey key = Registry.CurrentUser;
    key = key.CreateSubKey("Software\\Something\\SomethingElse");
    return (string) key.GetValue("InitialFolder", "");
... and I had to use the Microsoft.Win32 namespace. I guess you can get the idea from this.

Hope it helps, Jacob.
