Is there any way to open the Registry of Windows 10 machine remotely with SoftPerfect Network Scanner? If yes, how?

Could you please clarify what you mean by "remote open" the registry:
  1. Enable access to the remote registry on a remote machine?
  2. Read some values from a remote machine's registry?
  3. Browse a remote registry in a user interface, similar to regedit.exe?

To use the Remote Registry feature you would need to configure the Windows firewall and enable the Remote Registry service on both machines.

Option 1.

I can access registry remotely and I can open first regedit.exe on my machine and from there connect to the remote machine. My question is whether I can do it with SoftPerfect Network Scanner.

For option 1 (to enable remote registry access on some computers) you would need to change the firewall configuration and start the Remote Registry service. In a domain environment this is usually done via Group Policy Object (GPO) in Group Policy Editor (GPE).

This is not something our software is designed for, so it cannot be done with the Network Scanner.

Sometimes you can find a solution faster if you try the forum search, have a look at the knowledge base, or check the software user manual to see if your question has already been answered.
