The Note will be your guide while creating an application.

If the Subkey or Value name doesn’t exist originally, then we can say that it should be deleted while unchecked. However, if the checkbox control was designed to create new registry value name and it should not be deleted upon unchecked, then you have an option for that also. Just Choose DeleteWhenUnchecked Property to False.

The SubKey or Value Name exists originally – In this situation we can say that it should not be deleted. However, there are times for example we want to create an application that will fix or remove some settings (e.g. settings made by viruses), then you have an option to delete the setting. Just Choose DeleteWhenUnchecked Property to True.

Value Name doesn’t exist

It means that in your computer, the registry value name doesn’t exist.

The Subkey doesn’t exist

It means that in your computer, the registry sub key doesn’t exist.
