How Can I write keys or values into regestry on remote computer??? Also how can I use an local administrator on remote computer in order to write regestry there.

For example I have two boxes, one for admin on remote computer, one is for his password. Also I have button "Write", I want if user types administrator name, and his password, once he click on button "write" it will write something into registry on remote computer. Also lets predict that I have another box for remote computer name!!

Also is that possible at all???

Thank you very much!!

    Hi g00r00,
    1. One way is to run an application on client machine and communicate with that application in Client Serve mode using sockets.
    2. Use remoting - Same kind of Client Server
    3. Use WMI (Not sure). Using adminstation rights you can access other persons computer, Run application on them . So you may be able to change registry as well
