        Description

        When au2.0 was created, we introduced a registry class. This is located at:

        install/src/windows/common/regkey

        I believe there are some issues with it, I don't recall exactly what. Another registry class was recently introduced at:

        src/windows/common/Registry.cpp/.h

        We also have lots of places where we have direct registry manipulation without any use of either class.

        We should consolidate all registry manipulation into one class and consistently use it throughout our repo.
