If the Remote Registry fails to load or initialize, the error is recorded into the Event Log. Windows 7 startup should proceed, but a message box is displayed informing you that the RemoteRegistry service has failed to start.

Dependencies

Remote Registry will not start, if the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service is stopped or disabled.
