I'd like to figure out how to load the langauge bar without any use interaction.  So, I've exported my registry file with my settings(it's a current user setting).  Importing the reg file works great, ie after a logoff and logon.  The next step is to load that toolbar...  What is the command line to load that bar?  I believe it has something to do with ctfmon.exe..

My idea is to load that batch file and reg file in the startup folder. Then load the command to start the langauge bar.


Any ideas?

You're correct, ctfmon.exe is the command that starts the language bar. This would be easiest to deploy with a group policy to add the current user entries and add a run key for ctfmon.exe to HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run REG_SZ="ctfmon.exe"  but if you want/need to use a batch file in the startup folder put the .reg file and a batch file with the following in the startup folder

@echo off

regedit /s "%~dp0filname.reg"


That should be all you need. I still think setting this with group policy would be the cleanest way but if thats not an option this should work for you.
