Yep I ran into this at one of our sites with Windows 7. The issue is that the remote registry is disabled by default where in XP it was enabled. Open up services.msc on a local pc and right click on the services (local) option to connect to the remote pc in question.  Look for the remote registry service and start it. Then try to connect.

I have had to restart services in Windows 2003 Server as well if I get that message. Hope this helps!

Thanks,

Good tip Johnny.  I never ran into this issue on any of my Windows 7 machines.  If I do however I know where to look for a fix now.

Thanks,
I have 1 server in particular (Server 2003 standard) that I cannot Bomgar to until I restart the remote registry service. Every time. And the service is already running. Any idea what's so %^&*9ing special about this particular server?

If you know either a local admin account or a domain admin account you can start the remote registry service remotely and then deploy the jump client without the users manual intervention.

To do this type the following in command prompt from your computer

sc \\computername start RemoteRegistry obj= .\Administrator password= password

or for domain admin use:

sc \\computername start RemoteRegistry obj= domain\username password= password

The above command starts the service




sc \\computername config RemoteRegistry start= auto obj= .\Administrator password= password

or for domain admin use:

sc \\computername config RemoteRegistry start= auto obj= domain\username password= password

The above command sets the service to start automatically on startup.


Please note you need to leave a pace between obj= username and password= password

I hope this is of some help :)
