Enable File Sharing with .reg file? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I would like to enable File Sharing with a .reg file.  I ran PC Monitor while enabling in the "Network and Sharing Center" but could not determine which key was modified.  Is it possible?  Anyone know which key and value?  TIA

  • Hi TIA,

     

    I didn't research it myself, for this scenario is outside the support area. But according to your test, it's maybe not that simple to enable File Sharing only by a .reg file.


    Thanks.

  • Hi,

     

    I would suggest a monitoring tool for you.

     

    Process Monitor is an advanced monitoring tool for Windows that shows real-time file system, Registry and process/thread activity. It may help you finding what you want.


    Process Monitor v1.26

    Thanks.

  • Yog Li, thank you for your response.  I actually did use "Process Monitor" and in my post mistakenly stated that I used "PC Monitor.  My mistake. 

    Of the 20,0000 registry touches that happened in the 10 seconds it took to enable file sharing I could not determine  which, if any, registry keys were changed to accomplish that.

    Any other ideas?

    TIA
