Monitoring and backup the remote machine registry in C#

hi

     I want to develop a software, which is to monitor the installation and uninstalltion of software on the network, When the user try to install the software or uninstall the software it must capture the details regarding the, user name,date of installed, name of the software.

My idea is
          Using Win32 API RegNotifyChangeKeyValue
         Monitor the registry chages then backup the registry if any changes in the registry and find the changed value.

It is possible to monitor the remote machine registry. if possible means how to monitor the remote machine and backup the registry.

thanks and regards

You could create a service and install on all machines which would store the changes. If needed you connect to them remotely and get the events.

This article has info on using RegNotifyChangeKeyValue. However it does not talk about getting the values changed. It only talk about the event.

You could take a sanpshot of the registry (not all but what you care about) and then later compare with the changes.
