    The simplest way would be to enable remote access to the other PC

    I have visited both computers' Remote Settings tab in Control Panel' System and check marks for allowing assistance from other computers, but I still have got the same error that the other computer is not on the network, remote access to the server is not enabled, the remote computer is turned off.
    This happens the same when I use RDC too.

    I would like to access and edit the computer registry so I don't have to ask its user to run any program to do that.

    Are you a system Admin?

    At least you have to be a local Admin on each PC you are going to edit its registry
