Response to: I was able to do this on one machine, but now I get this error.

Update:


I just verified on one machine that the remote registry service is started. But it would not let me connect. Same error message. However, I can already remote desktop into the machine. I was just testing this feature. Any ideas? Something to do with service pack 2's firewall maybe?

    Well crap! :) I should comment more often as it helps me fix the problem. Hehe. Apparently File and Print Sharing has to be turned on in the Exceptions for the SP2 firewall. It should have already been turned on I guess for the network, but anyway. I just did it on this test machine and the remote registry connected fine.

    I hope this helps others.

      i had the same problem the workaround
      -make the user(e.g XP machine) as part of administrators on the remote machine
      it worked for me hope it also does for you.
