Hello All,

I would like to deploy my script via gpo but you can not deploy .vbs files. (or I think you can but only as a login in script) I would like to create a file that would edit my registry entries I have wise package studio. I am not sure where to begin to make that happen. Is it possible to create an msi file that only edit registry entries?

Go to the downloads section of this site and download the Windows Installer Wrapper Wizard. Easiest way to do this. You could create a blank WiseScript and run the script via Custom Action but the first option is easier.

Thanks for the speedy response. I did download the windows installer wrapper wizard and if I selected the option to create a new msi the "Next" button was greyed out. Any chance you can walk me through the Blank WiseScript Custom Action. or if you know of how to get the windows installer wrapper going they would help too.

Why bother with the wrapper? You'd be making it a great deal more complex than it needs to be. An MSI is more than capable of writing registry entries only.

There are a few ways to create that MSI. You could capture it, using your authoring tool's capture applet or import the relevant registry entries from a .REG file.

As I mentioned, importing a .REG which contains your settings is the easiest route. Use the WPS help for details on importing .REG files.
