This command uses the same syntax as the regkeydelete command, but places a call to Wow64DisableWow64FsRedirection before launching the 64-bit version of regedit to edit the registry, allowing you to use the 64-bit registry available on 64-bit machines.

This command deletes a registry key and all of its contents. If the value doesn’t already exist, this command fails and all subsequent commands are not run.
