Edit HKEY_Current_User for each Terminal Service User

I have a number of Terminal Services Clients that I need to edit the HKEY_Current_User key for each user.  How can I access this key, for each user, without logging in as each user and editing it within their session?

Thanks
NV

Was this a result of a software installation? If so, you may be interested in this:  http://www.windowsitpro.com/Articles/Index.cfm?ArticleID=7068

Can you create a logon script that runs a registry tweak?


REGEDIT.EXE

Create a regfile with the static registry values and import them from the login script.

I.E: "regedit /s settings.reg"

I'll need some time to read through that article.  So far I'm not sure if it's giving the problem, solution or both.
The script is a good idea, I could set it up to delete the regedit entry after login and assign it to all clients.  Hmmm.
I'll let this question float a while longer.......

Came up with this script.  I'll use it in the users start up for now.

Set WshShell = Wscript.CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
WshShell.RegWrite "Reg_Key_Here", "Key-Value", "REG_DWORD or whatever"


Thanks.

I'm glad this solved your problem.  And the script looks good...it's better and more effecient to use the VBscript like your are.

-take care
