I'm new to app deployment in general, but have written a few enterprise installations thus far in my new/current position. For my latest project, I need to push out a registry modification for XP workstations in my enterprise with an application install. In order to make sure the shadow boxes don't "burn in" on workstations, I need to disable the display effect "show shadows under menus", I know how to turn it off manually but I cannot find it in the Windows registry. Does anyone know the registry entry to change this? I've Googled like a madman, but every site telling how to do it gives the manual "uncheck the box" instructions which I already know.

I believe I know how to include it in an XML that runs during Windows startup pre-GINA - my understanding is that it would be "regedit /s" followed by my regmod. If I'm mistaken on the syntax or command, please let me know as well.

Thank you!

I figured it out myself! I tracked down the key(s), then had to export the registry keys, edit and combine them into one .REG file, copy that file to my shared enterprise deployment folder and add the "regedit /s" followed by the .REG file the export I created.
