Automatic registry imports
Posted on 2002-06-10
I would like to know if there is a way to allow a Client computer running Windows 2000 to do an automatic registry update. Specifically, our users' logon script (from a Windows NT 4.0 Server domain) includes a line that says "Regedit /s filename.reg". For our Win95 & Win98 machines this has worked great to make sure certain settings stay where they are supposed to. However, several of our newer machines are Windows 2000, which gives an error message stating that it cannot access the registry when the user logs in. Whenever an admin logs in everything runs properly, but the regular users (who are the ones we *want* to get updated) cannot import it properly. The only way that does anything so far is to give the user local Administrator rights, but this is not practical from a security standpoint. Any way to push the ".reg" file through without giving users admin rights?
