Trying to apply a registry branch to all computers in a domain

Here's what I'm trying to do:

I'd like to merge a registry branch into a computer's registry in my domain upon boot up and
I'd like to do this via domain policies, but I don't seem to be able to figure out how...

1 Solution
Create a CMD file that calls the reg file from a share that is accessible to everyone (SYSVOL\Scripts is a good one).
Use your Default Domain GPO to create a STARTUP script - this runs in the context of the SYSTEM account on the machine so it has permissions to add the reg file.  This applies to any hive except HKEY_CURRENT_USER.

If it's for this hive then use a LOGON script instead.  When the user logs on, they'll get the key merged since they have access to their own NTUSER.DAT (which is effectively most of the HKEY_CURRENT_USER hive).

Let me know.
