We have created a .reg file to disable windows updates. It works on a local machine, but when deployed through kace it will not successfully initiate the reg file.

 

 

Answer Summary:
Several methods to successfully deploy registry changes are detailed below, including a batch file with regedit /S [file].reg, the registry wizard and windows automatic update settings under the configuration policy section, and creating an MSI with the registry changes.

I have a ,reg file in one of my scripts, and it works ok. I used an Offline KScript, uploaded the .reg file as a dependency, and chose 'Run a batch file'. The contents of the batch file is this:

@echo off

regedit /S name.reg

I have found downloading one of the simple Microsoft Fix It files and modifying it with ORCA is a great way to deliver registry changes and all sorts of other things.

  • Woa, this seems like a great way to push out scripts and registry keys as managed installs. I know this is an ancient thread but could you elaborate on exactly how you've gotten this to work?

There's also a registry wizard of sorts that I find useful. Go to Scripting > Configuration Policy > Enforce Registry Settings > and paste in the contents of your .reg file. It will then spit out a script for you which you can configure to your liking. Works fine for me.

  • On second look - there is also a specific "Windows Automatic Updates Settings" option under Configuration Policy. Mayhaps that could be an option for you as well.
