Registry edit error

I have a registry file that needs to be merged on a per user basis.  When i try to merge this registry file under my users login, I get a msg stating "Registry editing has been disabled by adminitrator".  there are a couple group policy's in place but i've checked every one of them to make sure the registry editing tools options was NOT configured.  These users are only a part of the domain users group which I've added w/ full control to the current users key permissions list in the registry.  The current users key is the only thing that will be modified with my registry file that I need to merge.  What am I missing that is blocking my users from merging this registry file?

Hi blackjack2003,

>> make sure the registry editing tools options was NOT configured.

Set it to "Enabled" and click Apply. Then reset it back to "Not configured". This removes registry based policy if already set.

-or-

Alternately, you can fix this problem using the reg.exe console tool.

Registry Editing has been disabled by your administrator:

Can't you just apply the registry fragment in a login/startup script?

I did select the enable option / apply and then reset it to not configured..and initially i was running it through a login and startup script(tried both)..but neither way was taking.  I'm gonna try the reg.exe method now and see how that works...will update in a bit.

Found a domain group policy about 4 lvls down in the tree with the registry editing tools disabled.  Once I set this to not configured and gpupdated everything worked.
