Duplicated registry key


Hi everyone,

I am wondering why Rhino seems to automatically duplicate my app registry key. I register as specified there (http://developer.rhino3d.com/guides/rhinocommon/registering-plugins-windows/) but instead of the HKEY_CURRENT_USER I use the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. When I look at the registry, I find two keys, the one I created and another that kind of reference my app but with another Guid. Someone already get this problem?

My key has two values : name and rhp path. The other key has several values that match in terms of info type with other plugin keys.

This is by design. Rhino can typically only write to HKCU so that is where we cache information about things like what commands are in a plug-in or what file types it reads/writes.
