    Do you know how to do the following?

    1) Remove license agreement from opening and needing to be accepted or denied when opening Stencyl?
    2) Change Scratch's default location for saving a file to a network drive?
    3) Stop the updates box from appearing when open VLC Media Player

    I plan to push this out to all computers, so if you know the registry entry or script to achieve the above please let me know.

    I know Scratch has an ini file in which you can set the default save location - http://info.scratch.mit.edu/Network_Installation. Can't help with the other two though.

    Use a copy of RegMon and change the setting on the PC and see what changes in the registry and then just export the key. I've had a look in the registry but cannot see anything, not got a copy of RegMon on here to check it, cannot see why it is not do able.

    It's defiantly doable My question was more of where the settings were to acheive it.

    That's because it's obsolete. Process Monitor (a.k.a. ProcMon) replaced RegMon many years ago.

    On my computer the vlcrc file is stored in the %AppData%\vlc folder. The only settings you need are...

    Code:
    # Ask for network policy at start (boolean)
    qt-privacy-ask=0
    
    # Activate the updates availability notification (boolean)
    qt-updates-notif=0
    I normally recompile the VLC installer using NSIS and add the switches below to every file association and shortcut. This has the same effect as modifying the registry.

    Code:
    --no-qt-privacy-ask --no-qt-updates-notif
    Another thing you can do to prevent VLC from checking for updates (e.g. via the Help menu) is to block the website below on your proxy or firewall.

    Code:
