Windows 7: Registry change to allow ctrl+alt+del from GoToMyPC client

05 Jun 2010   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium
Registry change to allow ctrl+alt+del from GoToMyPC client

I am trying to get GoToMyPC (host side) installed and bullet-proof. Everything is working normally at this point -- except that the host machine, running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, will not allow the client system to force a ctrl+alt+del to reboot the host in the event it locks up and doesn't reboot by itself.

My problem is summarized in this warning from "How to Open the Local Group Policy Editor in Windows 7":

"The Local Group Policy Editor will only be available in the Windows 7 Professional, Ultimate, and Enterpise editions. You will not have the Local Group Policy Editor available in the Windows 7 Starter and Home Premium editions."

The Tech Support people at GoToMyPC are blissfully unaware of this limitation in Home Premium edition, and keep pointing me to a page in their support site that tells how to enable this capability via the Local Group Policy Editor. Of course, I can't do that.

I could update (for $80 additional) to the next higher level of Windows 7 in order to get GPE capability, but according to what I've read, I should be able to do what I need for GoToMyPC by directly addressing some key in the Registry. Can someone help me with instructions on what to change in the Registry that will allow a ctrl+alt+del to be sent to the host by the client? Or point me to the correct forum, if this one isn't it? Thanks.
