So I have an OEM dell copy of this software installed on a W7 machine.  I am creating an image to be deployed with 30+ dell machines.   I have this installed on the image and it works fine.  The only problem is everytime a new user logs on and tries to open it the registration screen will pop up the first time it's ran.

Is there a registry key to add to my reference image that will disable this?

FYI I'm not actually trying to deploy this application with an MSI because I've heard nightmares when it comes to roxio software.


Thanks for any help in advance.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Sonic]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Sonic\Registration]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Sonic\Registration\Roxio Central Core 3.0]

I create a installer user and install everything, run all the software/browsers to configure user settings for that user.  Run sysprep and copy that profile to default and reminders like that, java, itunes, ... do not pop for any user.

You can also load the default user hive off line and poke the changes and then unload the hive back to file and that will also then work for all new users.

Is there *really* a requirement for all the machines to have CD creation capability? I routinely ditch this kind of OEM bloatware from my images.
