Remote Machine MSconfig

3 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi all,

I was thinking of making a program/script that will effectively do what MSconfig does for startup items but will be used on remote computers (This will save logging onto Networked machines through RDP or VNC and disrupting users working). The way to do this I believe would be to delete/create registry keys in another place which is effectively what msconfig does:

It copies values from these: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

and moves them in a different format to here: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shared Tools\MSConfig\startupreg

I just wondered if this was possible with Autoit because I can only see that RegRead works on a Local machine and not remotely through remote registry. Seems a fairly straightforward idea but I don't believe such a program exists at the moment (I checked :D).

Dog ate your help file?

From the comments under RegRead() in the help file:

It is possible to access remote registries by using a keyname in the form "\\computername\keyname". To use this feature you must have the correct access rights.

:D
