I actually pulled this question from an earlier posting (2012), which didn't seem to get answered there, so i was hoping to bring it back up. I created an offline script to execute a registry file at user login, but it fails to execute. When I run the script when a user is logged in, it works great! The registry file only sets some Internet Explorer settings, but it's imperative that this runs as user logon. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. :-)

Offline scripts cannot modify any user related items since the profile is not active yet, that includes HKCU keys and anything under c:\users\usersprofile.  A way to make a change such as this is to use a script to place the keys in "Active Setup" area of HKLM
