I am using the following code to edit the registry on clients computer connected to my network.  But instead of displaying the message on the client’s computer, the echo is being performed on my computer. Please help. Below is the code that I am using to perform this operation:



Const HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE = &H80000002
strComputer = "remotecomputer"

Set objReg = GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & _
    strComputer & "\root\default:StdRegProv")

strKeyPath = "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Jet\4.0\Engines\Jet 4.0"
strEntryName = "MaxLocksPerFile"
dwValue = 150000
objReg.SetDWORDValue HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, strKeyPath, strEntryName, dwValue


wscript.echo "File Lock Change is complete. Please restart Computer."

'' to send.  I am assuming you are running an NT/2k/XP build windows system.
''To start your Messenger service you can pull up the cmd window and enter NET START Messenger

Dim wsh
Set wsh = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
wsh.Run "NET SEND " & strComputer & " File Lock Change is complete. Please restart Computer.", 1, True
