Registry editor problem

Hi

I've used CC4CM for many years w/o any problems. Now I've moved to Windows 2016 server and have it installed there. It's working fine with one exception. If I run the Regedit under the Tools, it opens the editor, but it won't connect to the target computer. It gives no error messages what so ever. What might be causing this?

The regedit plugin was always cheaty... as regedit.exe does not provide a parameter to open a remote Computer. So it was sending keystrokes to connect a remote machine... and that seems to have changed in Server2016...

But isn't the remote registry service disabled in Win10/Server 2016 by default ? Then it does not make sense to me to investigate in this plugin...

Hi

Thanks for the response. This was my bad. It's working fine. I just didn't realize, that Client Center had to be opened with elevated rights i.e. run as administrator. When I do that, the regedit part works as well.
