Hi,

I am putting together a pendrive with all my PuTTY settings and keys etc, there are 3 questions in this topic that should all be easy.

Finally, I want to add a couple of reg files to the registry. I could add with regedit -s though a system like command in C/C++, but I was wondering if there was an easy way to do this in VBS.

Thanks
Nigel

Use this instead:

Dim WSH
AppToRun = "regedit -s c:\test.reg"
Set WSH = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
WSH.Run AppToRun

You could create .reg file
1. In the notepad create all the registry entries

Example:
REGEDIT4
 
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MyTest\Tester.Test]
@=
"RegValuea"="abcdef"
"RegValueb"="xyz"
""
2. Save the above file as test.reg

3. Run the .reg file and you will see the registry entries at HKLM/ Software / MyTest

Hope this helps.
