Need Help with Windows 2003 .reg file

Hello,

I recieved the following registry information from another person to add to my Windows 2003 registry:

"MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurePipeServers\winreg",0,"D:PAR(A;CI;KA;;;BA)(A;;KR;;;BO)(A;CI;KR;;;S-1-5-19)"

The entry above is supposed to set the permissions for the winreg parameter in the registry.
I copied that information into a .reg file and tried to import it into the registry.  An error message popped up stating that the key selected is invalid.  I did some further research and noticed that the syntax of the reg file might be only for Windows 2000, not 2003.  I tried different variations such as adding brackets, etc., but nothing seems to work.

Any ideas as to how to properly format Windows 2003 permission settings for the registry would be most helpful and appreicated.  Thank you.
