In a typical MFC application I use SetRegistryKey(_T("My_Company")); to set the root registry entry for my application. The MFC application however creates an entry by the name of executable where it stores all the settings of that application. I don't want that because we often change the name of executable and I want it read registry from the same set location. As example if my application name is Calculator.exe and Calculator_debug.exe it creates two different registry settings.

My_Company\Calculator\settings
My_Company\Calculator_debug\settings.

How can I stop that?
