The view that was used to create the registry key.

Default, if no view was used.

On the 64-bit versions of Windows, portions of the registry are stored separately for 32-bit and 64-bit applications. There is a 32-bit view for 32-bit applications and a 64-bit view for 64-bit applications.

Do not assume that the view always corresponds to the actual view of the RegistryKey.
