Adding a registry key during vb logon script

I currently get an error on my logon script intermittently. It states:

CMD.EXE was st arted with the avove path as the current directory.
UNC pats are not supported. Defaulting to Windows directory.

After doing research, I found that I need ti add the value DisableUNCCheck REG_DWORD and set the value to 0 x 1 (Hex).

Any help with adding this key in my script? Thank you.

try this
const HKEY_CURRENT_USER = &H80000001
strComputer = "."
 
Set oReg=GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" &_ 
strComputer & "\root\default:StdRegProv")
 
strKeyPath = "Software\Microsoft\Command Processor"
 
oReg.CreateKey HKEY_CURRENT_USER,strKeyPath
 
strValueName = "DisableUNCCheck"
dwValue = 1
oReg.SetDWORDValue HKEY_CURRENT_USER,strKeyPath,strValueName,dwValue

Thanks for the link shasunder -

REG ADD "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Command Processor" /V DisableUNCCheck /T REG_DWORD /F /D 1
