What problem are you having?
I cannot access the tools that are hosted in Computer Management on a remote computer.
Cause: The Remote Registry service is not running on the remote computer.
Solution: Ensure that the Remote Registry service is started on the remote computer. For more information, see Start, stop, pause, resume, or restart a service. To start the service, you need the appropriate administrative credentials on the remote computer.
