installing reg files as a post install task in k2000

03/09/2016 1302 views

hey people.

I have a reg file I would like to add to my post

install tasks.

I have a reg file I exported from my user profile

and I would like to deploy it to all pc and make

it the default registry settings for all users.

What would be the easiest way to go about this?

Thanks all.

I use a batch file to load the default user registry hive and then import the settings. You need to modify the exported registry keys to point to the path that will be there when the hive is loaded. Here is an example that turns on the Excel Analysis toolpak.
Batch File:
reg load HKU\Def c:\users\default\ntuser.dat
reg import "excel-analysistoolpak-x86.reg"
reg import "excel-analysistoolpak-x64.reg"
reg unload HKU\Def
Registry file for x86:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


"OPEN"="/R \"C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft Office\\Office15\\Library\\Analysis\\ANALYS32.XLL\""

"OPEN1"="/R \"C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft Office\\Office15\\Library\\Analysis\\ATPVBAEN.XLAM\""
Place the files in a zip archive and upload them as an application post install task. The parameters for the task is the name of the batch file that loads the keys, I normally call mine loadkeys.cmd.
