I've written a script that is supposed to pull registry values from all machines on a network. The problem I'm having is that whenver it comes across a win9x machine, it won't time out, it just hangs. I attribute this to the fact that there's no user level security implemented on those machines. The fact that I can't pull data from those machines isn't my concern. My concern is that the script won't continue. I've tried to either connect directly like
my $RemReg = $Registry->Connect("Machine", "Key to attach to");
All with the same results of hanging on the win9x machines.
I've been over the Win32::TieRegistry docs time and time again and I haven't been able to find anything to fix the problem. The other thing I was exploring was to identify the OS beforehand, but I haven't been successfull in that either(Without WMI anyway).
Any suggestions would be helpful
