Hello,

I have created a registry hack, for lack of a better word, that disables the Windows Automatic Updates and I am trying to upload it to KACE so that I can distribute it to all of our Laptop users. How would I go about getting this loaded up?

Thanks for helping me on this.

  • Thank you SMal.tmcc. Here is the reg file details:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update]
    "ElevateNonAdmins"=dword:00000000
    "AUOptions"=dword:00000001

    What do I need to copy and paste and then what do I do after I have copied and pasted this? How do I test to make sure that it works?

Create a kscript that uses the line you need injected and you just cut and paste reg file.  If you need more details, post your reg file I gave give you sample of those lines. 

Go under Scripting - Configuration Policies - Registry and cut and paste in there

  • Thanks, I have navigated to the correct area in KACE. I am unsure what to do once I have copied my file contents. Here is what I have.

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update]
    "ElevateNonAdmins"=dword:00000000
    "AUOptions"=dword:00000001

Hi,
wrap up a call to reg-edit to import it silently via a cmd and deploy that (with the .reg file)
I'm not familiar with KACE but that would be the easiest method.

paste your file in and click save.

It will return to the typical kscript page with the task already completed for you, Fill in the name properly and add your machines or labels and other settings,  test then deploy.
