Python20 win32api RegSetValueEx in Win2k

I'm a newbie and tried to add some values to the Windows2000 registry database 
using the RegSetValueEx command:


subkey=win32api.RegOpenKeyEx(win32con.HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE,'Software')
subkey=win32api.RegOpenKeyEx(subkey, 'Dummy')
self.registry_key=subkey
win32api.RegSetValueEx(self.registry_key, "7000", 0, win32con.REG_SZ, 
"742890210")


With Win9x there was no problem, whereas with W2k and NT I always get the error: 
pywintypes.api_error: (5, 'RegSetValueEx',  'Zugriff verweigert') (the last is 
'access denied' in german).


Using win32api.RegSetValue(self.registry_eaw_key, "7000", win32con.REG_SZ, 
"742890210") I succeeded, but the result was a new  subkey. 


I think it is something dealing with security. Is there somebody who can help 
me?
