We want to add several registry settings with gpo.
what is the best way to do this ?
making a bat file that says start registry -s "\\server\netlogon\reg.reg"   ??
when i execute the bat file on the local pc it adds the registry, no problems.

when i logon to the test pc i see that the  script wants to run and with gpresult i see the policy is executed. but nothing is added in the registry.

Are you assigning this script as a login script or as a startup script?  Do your users have local administrator rights on their workstations?

If your users do not have local admin rights, you will need to assign the script as a startup script on the computer objects in question, as startup scripts run in the security context of LocalSystem.

There's exists a cool Tool which makes that much more easier!

1. Download the nuts.exe this collection includs a tool named RegToAdm.exe
2. Export the Registry Keys which u want to set
3. Post the content of the .reg file into the RegToAdm.exe and convert it to .adm "code"
4. Save the code into a .adm file
5. In your Group Policy add the Adm file on the user settings and configure it
6. I think this do the job

Try this first on a test enviornment!
