For SQL Server 2008, this may also be a bug that SQL 2005 checks are
erroneously reporting since MBSA hasn't been updated to support SQL Server
2008 vulnerability assessment (VA) checks.

MBSA reports an error on one of my SQL instances. I have tried to find out
what the error means, but haven't had any luck with it. Any help would be
CmdExec role Error reading registry. If you are scanning a remote
computer the Remote Registry service on that computer should be enabled. (13)
This is a local scan of a SQL2008 development box.
thanks in advance
