I'm trying to create a script that will turn off Active X filtering in IE 11.  I used the Registry Wizard under Configuration Policies and afer i created it i received the following error in the Script Detail page: 

Parse Errors: 
no match for 'reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\VersionManager" /v DownloadVersionList /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f'

I havent sent then script to any computers, why would i get this error under the Notes: section...any help would be appreciated, thanks!!

  • Can you post the full XML of the script?
  • Have you tried to run the script as the Logged In User? I had trouble importing reg keys into HKCU when running the script as the system or an administrative account because it is the Current User key. After I switched it to run as Logged On User, my issues went away.

Kace could not recognize what i was trying to do.  So i ran 'reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\VersionManager" /v DownloadVersionList /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f', in cmd line.  Then exported that registry key from my PC to a .reg file, opened that file in notepad, then copied the text to the K1000.  Under the Scripting>Configuration Policy>Registry wizard.
