Access to remote registry of Windows 8.1

I have Wi-Fi router with local network 192.168.1.0/24
PC #1 - Windows Server 2008 R2 connected to wired LAN interface
PC #2 – laptop with Windows 8.1 x64 connected to Wi-Fi network of this router
I created same local administrator accounts in both computers
So, I am able to access remote registry of W2K8 from my laptop and not able to access remote registry of my Win8.1 laptop from server PC with same account credentials

1)      Firewall on laptop is disabled
2)      Remote registry service is enabled
3)      Remote Procedure Call (RPC) is enabled
4)      Error is this: Error Connecting Network Registry
Unable to connect to PC-NAME. Make sure that this computer is on the network, has remote administration enabled, and that both computers are running the remote registry service.

Any ideas?

Thanx in advance

Have you tried disabling the firewall on the server as well?

If the server firewall is blocking dynamic ports, or limiting them to a range and the laptop is responding with a port out of range you may get this issue.

Yes, I did, but it doesn't help

"Firewall on laptop is disabled" - how? Did you disable the service? That wouldn't be good. You should rather set the config of the firewall profile to off.

To have the server connect to the PC, follow these steps:

PC ENABLE printer & file sharing

Server > use start > run
\\pchostname\c$ (will prompt username password, try to use pchostname\administrator as username)
When you see the content of the C drive of the PC, you can start up regedit to connect to it.

Windows Firewall on laptop is disabled both by service & management console
\\laptopname\c$ works fine, I see all the content, but I still can't connect to registry (see attachment)

Don't stop the service. Just turn off the firewall by using firewall configuration.

This is event log of Win 8.1 when I'm trying to access registry:

An account was logged off.

Subject:
      Security ID:            Lenovo\admin
      Account Name:            admin
      Account Domain:            Lenovo
      Logon ID:            0x189FF08

Logon Type:                  3

This event is generated when a logon session is destroyed. It may be positively correlated with a logon event using the Logon ID value. Logon IDs are only unique between reboots on the same computer.
