Is there a mean to start Remote Registry service in Windows 7 before an authenticated vulnerability scan in VM.
In most cases , this service is not started.(Default state is Manual in Win 7).
If the target is configured within a Domain, you can use Group Policy Settings to set the "Remote Registry Service" to automatic.
If the target is a Non-Domain (local) target, you will need to adjust the "Remote Registry Service" service before scanning.
For additional information regarding Authenticated/Trusted Scanning and details regarding User account setup, please see Help > Resources > Tips and Techniques, where you can find documentation regarding several different types of Authentication.
Additionally, if you do not plan to turn on Remote Registry Service, you can alternatively use the "Disolvable Agent" which does not require the "Remote Registry Service" to be enabled (in fact it must be turned off for the agent to launch). For additional information with regards to this feature, please goto Help > Online Help > Search > Disolvable Agent
Please let me know if you need any further assistance.
