Default remote registry access

i'd like to be able to access the registry on a remote computer. i can't find any documentation on how to do this. all examples i've found of using the Microsoft.Win32 Registry/RegistryKey classes mention nothing about accessing the registry on a remote machine. It's very easy to access WMI and PDH on remote machines so I'll be surprised if the same is not true of the registry. Thanks for reading!

hi,
   i am facing problem fetching remote registry. i want the details information about installed software name, version, installed path and licence key(if any).
i can fetch software name, version, installed path. but i am unable to fetch licence key(serial no.). i can fetch others information easily b'coz, they are stored in a same registry key, whoes sub keys can featch easily. the path is SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstal l\. but there is no defined path for serial number. serial numbers are stored in "SOFTWARE". but there is no defined hierarchy, we can get it may be level 2, may be level 3. it depends on different software

regards
Saumya

best of luck and thanks in advancd
