thanks so much it is helpful post

Hi there,
that's a great function, very useful.

It is just me or is the [Microsoft.Win32.RegistryKey]::OpenRemoteBaseKey method very slow? On my clients its running some minutes to collect all entries.
I've changed the function a little bit to use remote sessions and running local on the client, this executes in seconds.

Is there any benefits for using the remote registry methods?

Greetings, Steven.

Thank you..its really helpful documents

Could anyone help me out please .....
