Hi Volker, in theory we could work on registry of the machine with
rpcclient, but actually the code to play with registry is commented out
and need some fixes to be reenabled (like the shutdown/abort shutdown)
code I've added in head.
Once the function are reenable, rpcclient may be a nice alternative.
