Hi,

Does anybody know of a way to start regedit from a command line and automatically connect to a remote client (connect network registry)? I want to use that functionality in our Helpdesk application, something like:
Code:
Shell '%comspec% /c regedit "\\1.2.3.4"'


If i shoud use other coding methods, no problem.

no, regedit has zero amount of automation available.
you can still use other applications or code your own, but regedit, no.

lol, this stretches the definition of automation a little bit - works on English machines:

Code:

break on

$hostname = "ABC123"

run "regedit"

sleep 0.5

sendkeys("~FC"+$HOSTNAME+"{ENTER}")

exit 0

Given these command line switches:

Regedit Command Line Switches

Was thinking maybe the /L: switch could be pointed to the remote folder (containing the system.dat,etc) of the remote machine, a quick test yielded ziltch for me though.

I've tried for a while as well for the inquistor/SIM tool as well, no luck

There may be some sort of automation available cuz the freeware tool RegMon is able to open RegEdit and navigate to a specific key or value unless of course they do some sort of SendKeys.

Thankz guys, i was also thinking of using sendkeys instead of keep staring at some sort of command line switch

I was looking for this to be able to edit/view remote registries whithout connecting by yourself. I have written some sort of inventory app: one part at the client collects the machine, user & application data and logs them in a SQL DB, another part queries the DB and presents the data. The app also contains some actions, like remote control, explore system drive, remote eventvwr or restage WS. Now i can add remote registry
