I'm trying to use RegistryKey.OpenRemoteBaseKey" to access remote registry. blocked by a werid problem.
Context: my machine and remote machine(name "myRemote") are in a same domain. And my account is in administrator group of remote machine. On remote machine, I create a key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\test\V1.0" in which a string value "build" with "1.0" Then I want to use Code to access this key.
dsRegKey is null, get exception when GetValue("Build")
Other Contexts: 1. If I create the key under "HKEY_CURRENT_USER", and RDC to the remote machine with my account, then all is OK. I can get the version "1.0". 2. If I create the key under "HKEY_CURRENT_USER", but let the remote machine logged off, I still get the null result. 3. I also try to add the path "Software\test\V1.0" into "winreg"( AllowedExactPaths and AllowedPaths) , but still can't access the key under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. 4. And I also try to access remote path "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion", I can get the "ProductName"information. But If I change the "ProductName"by hand, access it again by code, still get old productname.
Quesion: How can I access remote registry "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" freely?
