for which hive?
If the hkcu, the user would have access - just drop it in the user's login script...

example:

reg add hkcu\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\run /v NewItem /d C:\File.exe

I am trying to change this key using this syntax but it won't work. Any one have any ideas?

reg add hklm\software\microsoft\Shared Tools\Stationary /v Stationary Folder /d H: /f

Because of the spaces, you'll need to enclose it in quotes...

reg add "hklm\software\microsoft\Shared Tools\Stationary" /v "Stationary Folder" /d H: /f

But you'll need admin rights to change data in that hive

If you're trying to configure the Microsoft Office Template Folder this is not the method.  You need to download the Office adm files so that you have Office Group Policy Options available to you.

I have done that all ready but could not find any place to change it. Do you know how to change the location with a GPO?

Well, even though you are using the term "Stationary"  I'm assuming that you are trying to have a uniform look to company emails?  This would be done with a Document Template, and then you can set the Shared Templates Path by using the General Microsoft Office 2003 (or 2007) Administrative Template (when you add it, it'll be called either Office11 or Office12).

The full path is:
User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Microsoft Office 2003 > Shared paths > Workgroup templates path.

These do need to be stored in a server share, and then you would specify the UNC path, not a mapped drive.   ie, \\SERVER\Templates  not K:\Templates
