It looks to me like this is a thin wrapper around the underlying API
call, and you're getting back an error from the lower-level services.
The way this reads, there might well not be an
HKLM\Software\Temp\Name; maybe the ValueName is what's wrong here?

Someone somewhere knows more than I do, but if you can't find that
someone here on python-list, you might be able to find some help on
Stack Overflow or another mailing list, from people who know how to do
this kind of thing in a different language. You'd have to translate
their suggestions back into Python, but when the wrappers are thin
enough, that's usually not too hard.
