Hi @Archana Soni ,
Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!
Do you want to detect the instances of Visual Studio 2017?
Changing registry entry of Visual Studio is not recommended. You can use Tools for detecting and managing Visual Studio instances.
In addition, the details of existing Visual Studio instances are located in C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\VisualStudio\Packages_Instances. You can also check it.
