I have a module that lets me easily access and edit the registry of the computer that the program is running on, but I need to know how I can Read/Write to the registry of other computers on a Local Area Network (LAN) or Wide Area Network (WAN)... assuming you have access to them.

Please provide sample code.

Thanks tons,

I believe you can use the RegConnectRegistry API function call.

See the RegConnectRegistry example at:

You're right.  You use the RegConnectRegistry Windows API function, but you need to have the remote registry service installed on the machine doing the remote calling.  This is a download from Microsoft for Windows 9x, but comes standard on Windows NT.

Thanks for the help.
