RegLoadKey(key, subKey, filename)

The RegLoadKey method creates a subkey under HKEY_USER or HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and stores registration information from a specified file into that subkey.


key : PyHKEY/int

An already open key, or any one of the following win32con constants:

subKey : string

The name of the key to delete. This key must be a subkey of the key identified by the key parameter. This value must not be None, and the key may not have subkeys.

filename : string

The name of the file to load registry data from. This file must have been created with the win32api::RegSaveKey function. Under the file allocation table (FAT) file system, the filename may not have an extension.


A call to RegLoadKey fails if the calling process does not have the SE_RESTORE_PRIVILEGE privilege.
If hkey is a handle returned by win32api::RegConnectRegistry, then the path specified in fileName is relative to the remote computer.
