im trying to run this reg file but on some machines it pop ups for confirmation and on some this is not running .

Launch a program... $(KACE_SYS_DIR)
File:    cmd.exe
Parameters: /c regedit /s  "$(KACE_DEPENDENCY_DIR)\ProxyEnable.reg"

also how can enable proxy settings for all users logging into a computer via KACE?

  • Are you running the script as the currently logged in user?
  • nope i use the last option.

    Run the Online Shell Script and KScripts in the context of specified credentials.
    • The settings most likely won't apply to the current user, in that case.
  • Hi, any update regarding this? I need to update registry HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon!LegalNoticeCaption, there is no errors, no UAC pop up, nothing, and the job reported successfuly but the registry didn't updated.
    Tried https://support.quest.com/kace-systems-management-appliance/kb/131517/how-to-import-reg-file-via-scripting-to-64-bit-registry-hive
    But no luck either.
    • Can you share your script details? Perhaps in another post?
      • Hi, I manage to solve this using %WINDIR%\Sysnative\regedt.exe

If it's prompting UAC, it's trying to write to a protected area, either HKLM or a user other than the currently logged-in one.

I say again: Group Policy is the way to do this.

Any client I've ever been at has done this via Group Policy.

GPOs can be scoped using AD groups.

I deploy registry keys via Offline Kscript. I upload the reg file and a simple batch file which executes the registry command. I then execute the batch file from the script.

  • can u share the screen shot or steps, my script works but UAC window pops up with do you want to make this change, how can i skip this?
    • I upload my .reg and .bat files
      For Task 1:
      Verify - Run a batch file (input my batch commands)

      That's it. I haven't run into any UAC problems with my scripts so I can't help you there.
If you are trying to write to the HKCU hive, you will need to run it as the current user or for a selected account.
Have you tried using the "Set a registry value" option or REG ADD in scripts instead of trying to import?This should get you around the UAC problem.
