When a registry hack doesn't work(telnet in Vista)
I guess the telnet issue with vista is well known by all now.
I solved the telnet client issue by a forum that gave me this:
1. Click Start then select Control Panel.
2. Select Programs and Features.
3. Select Turn Windows features on or off.
4. Select the Telnet Client option.
5. Click OK.
6. A dialog box will appear to confirm installation. The telnet command should now be available.
I then attempted to solve the telnet association issue with IE 7 by adding (as instructed by technet) this key to the registry:
(note the above line can be pasted into notepad and saved with a .reg ext.)
However, this failed to solved my problem. While I can telnet now in vista(I know,I know, it's insecure) I can't click on telnet links and have my default telnet client open. This is a real annoyance and I was wondering if anyone has an alternate solution?

The Telnet URI handler has been removed from IE7
Support removed for: Gopher, Telnet
, Scriptlets, DirectAnimation, XBM, Channels (Active Desktop), as well as the DHTML editing control, Offline Favorites
So I think you're out of luck.
Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

There are plenty of folks who claim they got it working. They say the registry hack I posted resolved thier issue but it didn't work for me.
