Thanks. I had actually seen that but as far as I can tell its using the network to connect to a running computer. My approach is for a forensics class where I have an image of the hard drive or the actual hard drive connected to my machine.
I would then copy the registry to my local computer where I would then open them to look for useful information such as previously connected devices. I've gotten the copying down, its just reading the copied files that has me stumped.
