Console::Write( "\nDelete newly created registry key? (Y/N) " );
if ( Char::ToUpper( Convert::ToChar( Console::Read() ) ) == 'Y' )
{
   Registry::CurrentUser->DeleteSubKeyTree( "Test9999" );
   Console::WriteLine( "\nRegistry key {0} deleted.", test9999->Name );
}
else
{
   Console::WriteLine( "\nRegistry key {0} closed.", test9999->ToString() );
   test9999->Close();
}
// Delete or close the new subkey.
Console.Write("\nDelete newly created registry key? (Y/N) ");
if(Char.ToUpper(Convert.ToChar(Console.Read())) == 'Y')
{
    Registry.CurrentUser.DeleteSubKeyTree("Test9999");
    Console.WriteLine("\nRegistry key {0} deleted.", 
        test9999.Name);
}
else
{
    Console.WriteLine("\nRegistry key {0} closed.", 
        test9999.ToString());
    test9999.Close();
}
' Delete or close the new subkey.
Console.Write(vbCrLf & "Delete newly created " & _
    "registry key? (Y/N) ")
If Char.ToUpper(Convert.ToChar(Console.Read())) = "Y"C Then
    Registry.CurrentUser.DeleteSubKeyTree("Test9999")
    Console.WriteLine(vbCrLf & "Registry key {0} deleted.", _
        test9999.Name)
Else
    Console.WriteLine(vbCrLf & "Registry key {0} closed.", _
        test9999.ToString())
