    WaitForInputIdle(ExecInfo.hProcess, 200);
    hWin := FindWindowA(PChar('RegEdit_RegEdit'), nil);
  end;
  ShowWindow(hWin, SW_SHOWNORMAL);
  hWin := FindWindowExA(hWin, 0, PChar('SysTreeView32'), nil);
  SetForegroundWindow(hWin);
  i := 30;
  repeat
    SendMessageA(hWin, WM_KEYDOWN, VK_LEFT, 0);
    Dec(i);
  until i = 0;
  Sleep(500);
  SendMessageA(hWin, WM_KEYDOWN, VK_RIGHT, 0);
  Sleep(500);
  i := 1;
  n := Length(Key);
  repeat
    if Key[i] = '\' then
    begin
      SendMessageA(hWin, WM_KEYDOWN, VK_RIGHT, 0);
      Sleep(500);
    end
    else
      SendMessageA(hWin, WM_CHAR, Integer(Key[i]), 0);
    i := i + 1;
