Reading registry key throws "Requested registry access is not allowed."

HK
I am exceuting the following command in C#

using Microsoft.Win32;

RegistryKey key = Registry.LocalMachine.OpenSubKey(KeyName);

I keep getting the exception "Requested registry access is not
allowed."

If i give EVERYONE full access to the key , then i am able open the
key but i do not want to do that.
Please help.

Give the ASP.NET process access as well as the IUSR account. Either that or
assign a user for the thread before making the call.
