This is all IMHO:

I guess you should try to store your registry keys in
'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE' (property 'Rootkey' of TRegIniFile).

Services run out of user context, so for a service, a HKEY_LOCAL_USER
does not exist.

This is also why you are able to read the key when you run the service
with a user account.
