I have to make a registry addition in:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers

I have found once I add entries, they only apply to the user who ren the addentry.reg file.

How can I make the entries I need affect all users?

Thanks,
Scott

You can add the REG as a startup script or thru a batch file whenever another user logs in.

I understood that  adding it to:

HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT would just make it affect "new" users, not existing ones.  No/Wrong?

I tried adding the key to Hkey Local machine and it appears to work there, is that the wrong thing to do?

Thanks,
Scott

Machine is a per machine setting so it's okay there as well.
