pushing a registry entry with K1000 Managed Distribution

12/17/2015 791 views
I would like a straightforward method to add a HKLM\Software\ registry entry on Win 7 64 bit OS using KBOX.

What I have done is to upload the reg file and execute it using a command line

I can push it and run it and inventory it, but the reg entry ends up under HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node.

(Strangely, the Custom Inventory Rule works and detects it using the correct path HKLM\Software\)

currently the KACE agent is a 32bit application so it runs under the ''32bit context''.
To circumvent the issue and access the 64bit registry you need to use WMI instead of the normal RegWrite calls.
The following article contains a VBS script that can help you:
