Thanks for you help, In the final solution I used some of your code, but amended it slightly as I did not want the command prompt popping up on screen, as we now have a pretty vbscript logon process.

I'll be awarding you the points as you are the only person that helped, and will post the code I used below

'---------------------------------------
' Install TS Reg Key - due to ts license server failure
'---------------------------------------
Dim wshShell
Set wshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
wshShell.Run "reg delete hklm\Software\Microsoft\MSLicensing /f", 0, True
wshShell.Run "reg import \\birmingham\dfsroot\Private\Upgrades\TimeKeeper_TS\tslic.reg", 0, True
Set wshShell = Nothing
