Hi,

How do i do it using kixtart?

Like this?

$chkkey = keyExist("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains\xxx.net");

if $chkkey = 0
$rs=addkey"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains\xxx.net");               $rs=writevalue("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\InternetSettings\ZoneMap\Domains\xxx.net","https","1","REG_DWORD");
$rs=writevalue("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\InternetSettings\Zones\1\1A00","0x00020000","REG_DWORD");
Endif  

Any better way to do it?

Ok, i think the above works.. except for this

writevalue("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\2\1A00","20000","REG_DWORD")

It did not update the key...

I'm not familiar with kixtart, but I would guess you have a syntax error there. Try changing:

writevalue("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\2\1A00","20000","REG_DWORD")

to

writevalue("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\2", "1A00","20000","REG_DWORD")

or perhaps to

writevalue("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\1", "1A00","20000","REG_DWORD")


Note that "Zones\2" is for "Trusted Sites" and "Zones\1" is for "Local Intranet"

Also, I am not very familiar with the significance of that entry (1A00) and the value of "20000" so I hope you know why you want to set it that way.

Thanks for the suggestions, seems like it really is a syntax error. the 20000 is for "Automatic logon only in intranet zone" (0x00020000). Anyway its wrong actually.. i tried 131072 and it seems fine.

I tested Group Policy at first too, but it seems using GP is more of importing the DC's settings to the clients..

Anyway i will award the points to r-k. Thanks.
