First make sure that you have enough rights to do that.
See here documentation


RegConnectRegistry
The RegConnectRegistry function establishes a connection to a predefined registry handle on another computer.

LONG RegConnectRegistry(
  LPTSTR lpMachineName,
                    // address of name of remote computer
  HKEY hKey,        // predefined registry handle
  PHKEY phkResult   // address of buffer for remote registry handle
);
 
Parameters
lpMachineName
Pointer to a null-terminated string containing the name of the remote computer. The string has the following form:
\\computername

If lpMachineName is NULL, the local computer name is used.

hKey
Specifies the one of the following predefined registry handles on the remote computer.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
HKEY_USERS
Windows NT: HKEY_PERFORMANCE_DATA, if the remote computer is running Windows NT
Windows 95 and Windows 98: HKEY_DYN_DATA, if the remote computer is running Windows 95 or Windows 98
Windows 95 and Windows 98: HKEY_CURRENT_CONFIG, if the remote computer is running Windows 95 or Windows 98

You cannot specify the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT or HKEY_CURRENT_USER value for this parameter.

phkResult
Pointer to a variable that receives a key handle identifying the predefined handle on the remote computer.
Return Values
If the function succeeds, the return value is ERROR_SUCCESS.

If the function fails, the return value is a nonzero error code defined in WINERROR.H. You can use the FormatMessage function with the FORMAT_MESSAGE_FROM_SYSTEM flag to get a generic description of the error.

Remarks
When a handle returned by RegConnectRegistry is no longer needed, it should be closed by calling RegCloseKey.

Private Const HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE = &H80000002
Private Declare Function RegConnectRegistry Lib "advapi32.dll" Alias "RegConnectRegistryA" (ByVal lpMachineName As String, ByVal hKey As Long, phkResult As Long) As Long

Dim hKeym as long
RegConnectRegistry ("\\machine", HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, hkeyM)
