i would like to have a post installation task that imports a .reg file i made. 

i attached the file to my post-install task.

but i do not know the command to run it silently.

any help would be great! thanks!

Create a VBScript, place it in the same folder where .reg file is there and just execute the .vbs

Option Explicit
Dim objShell
Dim objFSO
Dim sCurPath
Dim sRegFile

Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
sCurPath = objFSO.GetParentFolderName(WScript.ScriptFullName)
sRegFile = sCurPath & "\<MyRegFile>.reg"
objShell.Run "Cmd.exe /C REG.EXE IMPORT " & Chr(34) & sRegFile & Chr(34),0,True
Set objShell = Nothing
Set objFSO = Nothing

  • or directly you can import your .reg file using following command

    cmd /c reg import "<Path>\<MyRegFile.reg>"

for a k2000 reg merge

upload the reg file to the app task and call

reg import file.reg

Complicated! What's wrong with 'regedit /S [.reg]'? :-)

BTW, if your .REG is directed at the currently logged-in user, you'll need the task to run in that context.
