I am trying to use an SCCM package to change a registry key so I can change the location the machine looks for particular files. I have tried running this by making a package with the reg key and a small script to run the regedit command. I have tried to use a TS to run a command line to run regedit and do the same. BOth come back on the log showing successful, but neither time is the registry key changed. It remained the same as it was before I ran the push.

So, what am i missing? I tried a search, but didnt see anything really matching my issue.

is the key located under HKCU? sccm runs in the system account, it's not the same HKCU has the logged in user.

What kardock said and also the location may be different if the target OS is x64. Also, just because the script executed and exited with a 0 return code, doesn't mean that it was successful. If you haven't included any error checking in your script, you may want to think about adding it as well as logging.

It is changing an entry in the HKLM area.
I will look into adding the logging/error checking in my script though.

THank you for the ideas and direction. I appreciate it.
