    Redirecting Registry Settings to a Network Share

    My brain is the consistency of pudding and I can't think straight enough to think this through myself.

    I'm in a similar fix to the gentleman in this post
    http://www.edugeek.net/index.php?nam...direct&start=0

    The difference is that we have dreamweaver 9 and it seems to be storing all the of the customizable site settings in

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\adobe\common\9

    I can't for the life of me think how or if it is even possible to redirect this to an editable location. (like a network share)

    Couldn't you create a registry file to change the setting in the users' profiles? It could run at logon say.

    Remeber to deploy the "mini" client. The msi is in a folder called "client" in the programs folder of the "full" client install.

    (the "full" one contains a local polreg editor which you dont need
    )

    Re: Redirecting Registry Settings to a Network Share

    What is it that you need to achieve Blind?

    If you need to override user's settings then as Ric says, you can merge a registry fragment in a logon script (it's a low tech way around the problem, but that is often the best way).

    Example Logon Script

    REG IMPORT "\\servername\sharename\path\AdobeSettings.reg "

    If you are using mandatory profiles and user's settings are being lost, then you need to create a logoff script which saves the settings to their home directory. You can use the REG command to script the export and import of registry settings;

    Examples

    Logon script

    REG IMPORT "H:\AdobeSettings.REG"

    Logoff script

    REG EXPORT "HKCU\Software\Adobe\Common\9" "H:\AdobeSettings.reg"
