I am trying to disable the scroll lock key by setting a registry key. I have the key exported as a .reg file but I would like to set this from my login script which is a .vbs script.
Here is the .reg file..
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout]
"Scancode Map"=hex:00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,02,00,00,00,00,00,45,00,00,00,46,00,00,00,00,00

How can I write this to the registry using the following format:
WshShell.RegWrite "HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Keyboard\ScanCode Map","DATA_HERE","REG_BINARY"
