The key/data is probably paged out, it happens sometimes.  You can
verify if there is anything there by examining the keys manually.

First you should find the CurrentControlSet (or you can look at all of
them if you don't know) and then use printkey (assuming controlset is

$ python vol.py -f [sample] --profile=Win7SP1x64 printkey -K
"ControlSet001\Control\Session Manager\AppCompatCache"

Let me know if you find something.

All the best,
