Importing Registry Settings through Script, Specifiying User Account - Part 2

I have another question, based from previous answers I received here:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Q_22494638.html

The problem is that the settings I need to import are Current User settings.
From what I understand, if executed by LocalSystem, they won't get imported properly because this will happen before the Windows logon process.

We have two OUs, one for domain computers, and another for user accounts.
If I were to apply the script to the user account OU, would this solve the problem?

Or is there some other way to go about this?

Yes, provided you make it a login script, not a startup script...

Problem with a login script is that these users do not have local admin rights so it can't be run from a login script without specifying a username and password in some way.

Well, 'normally' an end user has full rights to the HKey_Current_User hive...isn't that where you're trying to update the key values?

Even without local admin rights to the workstation they'll be able to import to HKEY_CURRENT_USER?

Typically, yes - unless it's been locked down for some reason...
They would need admin rights to write to HKLM, but not HKCU
