var n = System.Reflection.Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().Location;

        Registry.SetValue("Computer/HKEY_CURRENT_USER/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/Internet Explorer/Main/FeatureControl/FEATURE_BROWSER_EMULATION", n + ".exe", k);
        Registry.SetValue("Computer/HKEY_CURRENT_USER/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/Internet Explorer/Main/FeatureControl/FEATURE_BROWSER_EMULATION", n + ".vshost.exe", k);
        Registry.SetValue("Computer/HKEY_CURRENT_USER/SOFTWARE/Wow6432Node/Microsoft/Internet Explorer/Main/FeatureControl/FEATURE_BROWSER_EMULATION", n + ".exe", k);
        Registry.SetValue("Computer/HKEY_CURRENT_USER/SOFTWARE/Wow6432Node/Microsoft/Internet Explorer/Main/FeatureControl/FEATURE_BROWSER_EMULATION", n + ".vshost.exe", k);

    Two things you don't need to start with computer and you are using / instead of \

            Registry.SetValue("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Internet Explorer\\Main\\FeatureControl\\FEATURE_BROWSER_EMULATION", n + ".exe", k);
