The information in this article applies to:
The Remote registry API, RegConnectRegistry(), allows a Win32 application to make registry API calls across the network. When an application calls this API, a named pipe connection between the two machines is created. Registry information is communicated between the machines through this named pipe connection. When the application is finished with the remote connection, it must call RegCloseKey() to close the registry handle.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a bug in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article. This bug has been corrected in Windows NT 4.0, Service Pack 2.
