    I'm stuck !! Group Policy Registry Keys

    Lordy I'm stuck - I've added keys etc via group policy before but never values. Can it be done ? I can't see the wood from the trees in regards to the amount of documentation I've googled so far.
    Example from this:

    Code:
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Multimodis Latina\Revise Latin\VerbsE]
    "regcode1"="{removed as its part of a key}"
    "regcode2"="{removed as its part of a key}"
    "regcode3"="{removed as its part of a key}"
    I can add the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Multimodis Latina\Revise Latin\VerbsE
    But can't work out how to add the values of after that.... [ The regcode entries ]
    Someone put me out of my misery....

    And I want to do this via group policy as I can't be arsed to knock up a script.

    in 2003 all you can do is premissions isnt it?

    i think 08 allows you to add keys via preferences

    Bugger - if that's the case. [ I can add the keys, it's the values I need to add too ] Looks like a script it will have to be then - god darn it.

    Can't you add reg values using the GPO client side extensions?

    Your puns are getting worse.......
    Sort of, I have some .reg files already in effect via user logon scripts. I wanted to be clever and do it via group policy instead......Security\Registry etc - why ? 'Cos I'm bored and wanted to do something in a different way that I have done before...

    You need the .adm white paper: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

    It was last changed in 2004 though - the API is pretty stable, but if you're going to do anything weird check it hasn't changed since then.

    You could just use group policy extensions as working with the registry is a part of that. Thats what we use and it rocks so far.

    Something is going out the window in a moment -

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Multimodis Latina\Revise Latin\VerbsE]
    
    "regcode1"="{removed as its part of a key}"
    "regcode2"="{removed as its part of a key}"
    "regcode3"="{removed as its part of a key}"
    In a .reg file is not working with my normal logon scripts with a:

    regedit /s revise_latin2.reg

    line in - it's not even adding the frigging key for christ's sake......All my other ones are working......looking for something to throw out the window.....

    This could be of some help Guide to Creating Custom ADM Files for GPO Distribution

    It outlines the creation of ADM templates for stuff like this.

    Thanks for the heads up on this - I have not looked into it at all but certainly will do as it may be help quite a bit on our 2003 server setup.

    Well it's odd as I have made a .reg & have it running in a logon script with a regedit /s command with other ones and it's just not working - my other ones are, [ for example that one that forces a change in the desktop wallpaper ] - but this one just refuses to work. I'll end up knocking up a AutoIT script by the looks of it.
    I've tried various versions of the .reg file etc but nope, just won't take. Tried admin accounts too, nothing....Must be a 'feature'
