How come you're being allowed to let scripts loose on your workstation estate and yet you do not know that REGEDIT requires the '/S' argument in order to run silently?

If this is a critical registry setting, I suggest you use a proper scripting language so that you can gauge success or failure and log the script's activity.

Make sure you are running the script as LOCAL SYSTEM and not logged-in user. I've ran scripts with the same settings you have displayed and it worked without showing any messages or prompting for user interaction.

  • This of course depends on whether you are trying to update HKCU (requires running as logged-in user) or HKLM (requires running as local system)
