    1) Learn Winsock.
    2) Learn how to edit the registry.
    3) Combine the two.

    Sounds pretty dodgy, remote registry editor. Why would you need to do this?

    Nothing at all, unless it's to manipulate/harm someone's computer.

    I didnt think about being able to use regedit remotely..
    Yes you did:

    Is it just me, or does this thread seem a bit weird? First exodus asks a question, then denies having asked it.

    The original poster wishes to edit the registry of a remote computer system. The poster asked for tips regarding the creation of such a device. Anon suggested that the original poster simply use the remote editing capabilities of Regedit. The original poster was unaware of the remote editing capabilities of Regedit, hence his mentioning that he "didnt [sic] think about being able to use regedit remotely."

    What's irregular about this?

    I agree that knowledge may be used to reach unfavorable goals, but blind suspicion is unnecessary.

    I don't REALLY care about harmful abilities. I'm just confused as to what Exodus wants. As I said before, Exodus created this thread and asked how to create a "remote registry editor". Then, in another post, said that he/she hadn't thought about editing the registry remotely. That is a contradiction, plain and simple. That's why I consider it a bit "weird".

    Please carefully review all posts within this thread. You'll see that the original poster desires a device to edit the registry of a remote computer system. Anon suggested using the remote editing capabilities of Regedit, an application provided by Windows itself. The original poster was unaware of the remote editing capabilities of Regedit. He therefore mentioned that he had not thought of using the remote editing capabilities of the Regedit application.

    The cited contradiction does not exist.

    Sorry, I misunderstood. I interpreted "being able to use regedit remotely" as meaning being able to change the registry remotely. I now see what Exodus meant.

    There's also regedt32 available on some Windows versions.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    Also I think there's a remote registry editor that comes with the Admin packs of 2000 & XP
