I'm packaging a few apps used here as part of our standard loads and came across an issue to which I havew no answer. These apps (Exceed Hummingbird DM Extensions) use toolabrs that incorporate within explorer and office. They provide new toolbars which incorporate their functionality within these parent applications. I tried a capture and got everything I needed with the exception of the toolbars. I also used procmon and saw nothing that looked remotely like a toolbar setting.

How do you go about capturing the settings for which add-on toolbars are available, are they locked, their position etc?

Each app will be different so it's impossible to say.

I was able to get a little information out of the support people but this didn't help much.

HKCU\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\INTERNET EXPLORER\TOOLBAR\EXPLORER

The key and value I am dealing with are ITBarLayout. It's a hex value and I can see that it is different on may pc's. I suppose there is a value or pair that states if this particular toolbar is enabled. I may not be able to get this one figured out.

If it's IE you need to manipulate, you may have more luck using its Automation model, driven from script. Ditto with Office.

This is not IE but this seems to be the key. As I play with it in my VM, I can see it changing things. Even opening the key but not changing anything seems to mess up settings. Very odd.

This is not IEI can see that but your registry fragment shows that the app is adding a toolbar to IE, or at least adding an item to an existing toolbar. I believe that you may be able to do that programmatically with Automation.
