http://vittoriop77.blogspot.com/2005/01/vbscript-write-registry-binary-value.html gives a decent example:
const HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE = &H80000002 
strKeyPath = "SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\wuauserv" 
strComputer = "." 
iValues = Array(&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00, 
&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H03,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H53, 
&H00,&H65,&H00,&H01,&H00,&H00, &H00,&H60,&Hea,&H00,&H00, 
&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00, &H00,&H00,&H00, 
&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00) 
Set oReg=GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" 
& strComputer & "\root\default:StdRegProv") 
BinaryValueName = "FailureActions" 
oReg.SetBinaryValue HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE,strKeyPath, BinaryValueName,iValues

The array lines all need to be on one line:
const HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE = &H80000002 
strKeyPath = "SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\wuauserv" 
strComputer = "." 
iValues = Array(&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H03,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H53, &H00,&H65,&H00,&H01,&H00,&H00, &H00,&H60,&Hea,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00, &H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00) 
Set oReg=GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\default:StdRegProv") 
BinaryValueName = "FailureActions" 
oReg.SetBinaryValue HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE,strKeyPath, BinaryValueName,iValues

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

This seems to be the same question as this one, where I answered with a working script. Can you refer to that question to see if that works for you?

> still same error

the error you receive for sirbounty's code is because of a cut-n-paste error.  He probably posted

   Array(&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,...

but it somehow got messed up on the EE site as a result of encoding problems into what you see:

  Array(&H00,&H00,&H00,&H00,...

in other words: remove the "&" for "&".

@sirbounty:> The array lines all need to be on one line:

not really. But if you split lines in VBS, you need to end each line with a space and an underscore. See my previous post + solution for how I did that, to keep the code readable.

> will ur code change default value of failureactions?

the code of sirbounty uses a different replacement string as you may have seen by now, it starts out with different values.  He showed the code as an example of how you can do it, I think.

Use your own string (amended to the &H-style for VBS) or check my solution, which also uses your string, correctly amended.

@abel - the site I copied this from didn't have the continuation characters present in their, so that is why I made that statement...
