    Hello,

    AFAIK, its not possible to connect to the registry on
    remote machine using Native API. The WIN32 API call
    RegConnectRegistry call does not make any native API
    calls on the local machine.

    AFAIK this is impossible. The remote registry is provided by the code
    advapi32.dll which is the RPC client. Winlogon.exe on the target machine
    contains code for RPC registry server.
    Native API is much lower than RPC.
