Enable the Remote Registry Service
Applies To: Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2
A registry key value tells Shutdown Event Tracker when to prompt a user for information about an unexpected restart or shutdown. Without remote registry access, Shutdown Event Tracker cannot remotely reset this registry key value after you have provided a reason.
Membership in the local Administrators group, or equivalent, on the remote computer is the minimum required to complete this procedure.
On the computer where you want to record Shutdown Event Tracker data, click Start, click in the Start Search box, type services.msc, and then press ENTER. Microsoft Management Console will start with the Services snap-in open.
In the console pane, right-click Remote Registry and click Start.
You must be a member of the local Administrators group, or equivalent, on the remote computer to complete this procedure.
