I attempted to remotely access a registry key under HKEY_CURENT_USER, RegConnectRegistry kept failing. I wrote a routine to discover the nature of the error an d got this message: RegConnect Registry failed with error 997: Overlapped I/O operations in progress.
How do I resolve this?
I suspect that the problem may be because my computer does not have the permission to access the remote registry key.
The two computers in question belong to the same work group. I attempted to grant permission to the remote computer on the server computer but could not find a listing of its name nor its workgroup.
How can I grant permission to a remote computer so that it can have access to a registry key ?
Where can I get a complete routine for remotely accessing a registry key on a network and on the internet?
