    Registry Editing

    I need to make a change to the registry as the GPO doesnt support the change I need.

    The Change is to HKEY_CURRENT_USER is there a way I can do this change via Group Policy or does anyone have any other ideas on how to roll this out to 200 machines without visiting them indivdually

    vbs script?

    VBScript for Windows 2003 - Change registry settings

    Below is the script he uses which can be adapted.

    ' The script writes to the registry value: Empty Temporary Internet Files
    ' The key Method is RegWrite. RegLocate is the name of the variable
    ' Note: REG_DWORD (not REG_SZ)
    ' Note: Logic of 0 (zero = off) means persistent ON - strange but true!

    Dim objShell, RegLocate, RegLocate1
    Set objShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
    On Error Resume Next
    RegLocate = "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Internet Settings\Cache\Persistent"
    ' Take great care with the line above
    ' Note the space between \Internet and Settings\

    objShell.RegWrite RegLocate,"0","REG_DWORD"

    WScript.Quit ' Tells the script to stop and exit.

  3. Thanks to ICT_GUY from:

    ??

    the GPO *is* a registry change.
    You can create an .adm template that has te change you need, then install it and apply as a group policy.

    Hi,
    First edit registry on 1 PC then export that registry, then make at bat file calling that reg file. Setup GPO on Computer config > Windows Setting > Scripts > Startup.

    Below example of bat file:
    regedit /s "\\Gas-apps-01\MSI$\RealPCB2 Reg\RealPCB2 Server.reg"

    Send me pm with your phone no and I explain you further.
