What does the following mean:

RegIni: CreateKey() relative to handle (0) failed - 161
RegIni: failed to load from file "c:\registtry\runonce.ini" 161

Where can I find a decent manual for RegIni.exe ?
What's the exact syntax for such a INI file.

Bye,

The NT Resource Kit suppliment 1 has a doc, I'm not sure about the first version of the reskit.

Another thing you can do it call regedit /s from cmdlines.txt instead of regini:

cmdlines.txt calls autolog.bat, which is:
START /WAIT REGEDIT.EXE /S .\AUTOLOG.REG

autolog.reg looks like this:
REGEDIT4

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
"DefaultUserName"="Administrator"
"AutoAdminLogon"="1"
"DefaultPassword"=""
"DefaultDomainName"="qrstuvwxyz"

the advantage being, you can dump the key from a working install in some cases via regedit instead of writing it yourself.

Here are a few KBs that have regini examples in them:

PLease look at the following lines:

\Registry\Machine    (a)
  Software
    Microsoft
      Windows
        CurrentVersion
          Run
            RUNBATCH = REG_SZ "c:\registry\BATCH.CMD"

\Registry\Machine   (b)
  Software
    Microsoft
      Windows NT
        CurrentVersion
          SourcePath = REG_SZ "C:\i386"

\Registry\Machine    (c)
  Software
    Microsoft
      Windows
        CurrentVersion
          SetupSourcePath = REG_SZ "C:"

\Registry\Users    (d)
  Software
    Microsoft
      Windows
        CurrentVersion
          Explorer
            Tips
              DisplayInitialTipWindow = REG_DWORD 00000000
              Show = REG_DWORD 00000000


\Registry\Users    (e)
  .Default
    Control Panel
      Keyboard
        InitialKeyboardIndicators = REG_SZ 2

\Registry\Machine    (f)
  Software
    Microsoft
      Windows NT
        CurrentVersion
          Winlogon
            AutoAdminLogon = REG_SZ 1
            DefaultDomainName = REG_SZ "blablabla"
            DefaultPassword = REG_SZ "xxxx"
            DefaultUserName = REG_SZ "administrator"

When I use this Runonce.ini with (d) at this place,
I have no automatic logon, after the third gui logon I get a logon dialog box, and my numlock is not on.
If I place (d) after (f) I have no problem at all.
What's wrong with the syntax of (d), Do I have to use double quotes around the eight zeroes ?

Peter,
I have already given you the answer in an e-mail : use regedit /s instead.
Did it work ??

Ja,

dat is waar,
Ik had alleen problemen met de runonce.
Wanneer ik een tweede keer een batchcommando  in de runonce (commando staat in de eerste batchfile) toevoegde deed hij het gewoon niet, blijkbaar verdwijnt het batch commando wanneer de hele batch is uitgevoerd, dus ook de nieuwe settings verdwijnen.
Ik heb nu gewoon de HKLM/..../ RUN gebruikt en daarna zorgt de Batch ervoor dat deze terug opgekuist wordt.

Cu,
