Help with Custom GPO and registry settings

Posted on 2008-06-19

We have about 150 CAD users and I need to turn off "Checkig for Digital Signatures" on AutoCAd and I need to use a GPO to do this as some of the customers drawings are turning this back on.  The trouble is that when this is on the browsing and even the network response gets slow (checking digital signatures acroos the WAN)

I have the following Template that I am trying to use but when I import it I do not get any errors and the settings part of the GPO is blank.

when I try the sample from the white paper on lhow to write a ADM file it works fine but cange the "KEYNAME" line and it quits.

looks simple  enough but for the life of me I can't make it work.

  CATEGORY "Custom GPO Settings"
    POLICY "CAD Digital Signatures Check"
      KEYNAME "software\Autodesk\AutoDesk Digital Signatures"
      EXPLAIN !!CADDigitalSignaturesExplain
      VALUENAME "IconOverlayEnabled"
CADDigitalSignaturesExplain="Insert explanation of change here"

Import the adm file, then go to the View>Filtering menu in the GP editor, and untick the box "Only show policies that can be fully managed".
Note that this will "tattoo" the registry just like regedit would; this setting will *not* "go away" if you remove the GPO.
