StartRDP script

A MSH script to connect to a client with "remote Desktop" even if RDP is not enabled,
if its not enabled then the script will enable it and it will be disabled again after RDP session closes.

I did remote registry access in MSH witch the .NET class.
don't know how to do a remote registry in "Native" MSH

gr /\/\o\/\/
# StartRDP.msh
# /\/\o\/\/ 2005
# Script to connect to RDP client even if RDP is not enabled
# if RDP was disabled the script will disable RDP again after session.

Function StartRdp {

$MachineName = $Args[0]

$regKey = [Microsoft.Win32.RegistryKey]::OpenRemoteBaseKey([Microsoft.Win32.RegistryHive]::LocalMachine, $MachineName)

# $True makes regKey writable
$regKey= $regKey.OpenSubKey("SYSTEM\\CurrentControlSet\\Control\\Terminal Server" ,$True)

# the Setting is Deny so I reverse it first with ! to set $RDPenabled
$RDPEnabled = !([system.boolean]$regkey.getvalue('fDenyTSConnections'))

write-host "$MachineName RDP = $RDPEnabled"
If (!$RDPEnabled) {
#write changes without closing key
write-Host "enabled RDP on $MachineName"
sleep 1
"Starting the remote Desktop Connection"
cmd /c mstsc /v: $MachineName

#If changed set the Key back to original value :
if (!$RDPEnabled) {
write-Host "Disabled RDP again on $MachineName"

#Close the Reg Key
