Windows 7 Remote Assistance Registry Settings

CharlesJP used Ask the Experts™
I'm looking for where the timeout setting for Remote Assistance is reflected.

By default, the timeout for a remote assitance invitation is 6 hours. If I change this to 30 minutes where is it reflected that I can write a script to look at? Is this in the registry somewhere or somewhere else?

Yes, but I need a script that can recognize this change. As in, Where in the registry does changing that in the GUI actually reflect.

Yeah... hard to find this info but so far I got this
Nevermind, its actually created when you make the invitation file. There is nothing in the registry regarding that . Sorry guys =/
