Pulling AutoCAD serial numbers from Registry

Autodesk stores their Autocad 2016 LT serial numbers in the windows registry under the following location:
then the key

I have setup a custom software inventory item pulling using the following custom inventory rule:
RegistryValueReturn("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Autodesk\AutoCAD LT\R22\ACADLT-F001:409", SerialNumber, TEXT)

the issue is that nothing is populating in the software side. I have tried changing it to HKLM and that also has not added anything to inventory. I also thought it was an agent thing and it needed time. so I waited 2 days to see if anything would populate, and still nothing has. I could just be special and didnt turn something on, I dont know. any help would greatly be appreciated.
