Custom ADM File from a Reg Key


I have a reg file that I would like to set on all desktop machines.

It adds Mplayer app to the DVD file association and also makes Mplayer an option when you insert a DVD.

THe keys looks like this


@="\"C:\\Program Files\\SMPlayer\\smplayer.exe\" %1"

Is it possible to create a custom ADM file from this?

Sorry didn't see the error message.
This is because of the quotes in the line:

  DEFAULT "\"C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player\wmplayer.exe\" /prefetch:4 /device:DVD \"%L\""

Remove all bar the first and last Quotes, the ADM is being read as the end of the string at the second set

Download the nuts toolkit fr here and you can convert any reg file to a custom ADM

Creating a custom ADM like mentioned above is definitely a way to go.  Do you have at least one Windows 2008 or one Vista machine on your network?   If you do you can do this using group policy preferences.

We dont have any 2008 machines or vista.

I tried the NUTS regtoadm before posting and it didnt work.

I get the attached message

I have attached the NUTS adm output too. Saved as a txt file though.

Have you created the keys in refedit and then export them before doing the conversion?
I had a similar issue recently where I hadn't created the TEG file quite right and it didn't work correctly
