Don't know much about Microsoft Word, but I once did this method to retrieve values from the registry...
private string GetDataValueFromRegistry(string key, string name)
    RegistryKey reg = Registry.LocalMachine;
    reg = reg.OpenSubKey(key);
    return (string)reg.GetValue(name);
... where the key is like a path, e.g. SOFTWARE\Microsoft etc. Actually, I think you should escape the backslashes.

Hope it helps, Jacob.

Hi Jacob, Tanks for your reply.

To solve the problem i use the code below:

string CaminhoAuxiliar = "";

            RegistryKey rk = Registry.LocalMachine.OpenSubKey("Software\\Classe s\\"+nomeAplicativo+"\\CLSID");

            CaminhoAuxiliar = (String)rk.GetValue("");

            RegistryKey rk1 = Registry.LocalMachine.OpenSubKey("Software\\Classe s\\CLSID\\"+CaminhoAuxiliar+"\\LocalServer32");

            CaminhoAuxiliar = (String)rk1.GetValue("");
