Please someone help me to create batch file to add following registry.
This has to be batch file, not vbs.

Thanks.
"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ManagementSoftware\4.0.0\WIN\","\\server\CMN\4.0.0\WIN\","REG_SZ"
"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ManagementSoftware\CMN\","\\server\CMN\","REG_SZ"
"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ManagementSoftware\CMN\DBLocation","\\server\CMN\","REG_SZ"
"HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Installer\Products\44AFB2215A150C7448D73E8EC48716A0\SourceList\Net\1","\\server\CMN\","REG_EXPAND_SZ"

You cant add the keys using a bat file but you can use a bat file to import a reg file.

Thanks.

Is it possible to add registry if it is vbs?
Do you know how to add "CPAU" usage in its vbs file?

I need to let users to run script on network share folder to change registry which domain user have no access.

Your information is out of date, regnighc.  Registry entries can be added directly in batch scripts with the reg add command.  Reg.exe is included by default in Windows XP and up.

kimakabane, I don't understand the entries in your original post.  What are the keys, what are the values, and what is the data within those values?

Shift-3 is correct.  You can use Reg Add to do this in batch.

I took a stab at guessing the values from the strings you have posted and came up with this.  This script will loop through a list of machines (in list.txt; should be in the same directory as the batch file).  If you don't need to run through a list, just use

reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ManagementSoftware\4.0.0" /v "WIN" /t "REG_SZ" /d "\\server\CMN\4.0.0\WIN\"
reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ManagementSoftware\" /v "CMN" /t "REG_SZ" /d "\\server\CMN\"
reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ManagementSoftware\CMN\" /v "DBLocation" /t "REG_SZ" /d "\\server\CMN\"
reg add "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Installer\Products\44AFB2215A150C7448D73E8EC48716A0\SourceList\Net\" /v "1" /t "REG_EXPAND_SZ" /d "\\server\CMN\4.0.0\WIN\"


****

for /f %%i in (list.txt) do call :main %%i
goto :eof
 
:main
set vCurrentPC=%1
reg add "\\%vCurrentPC%\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ManagementSoftware\4.0.0" /v "WIN" /t "REG_SZ" /d "\\server\CMN\4.0.0\WIN\"
reg add "\\%vCurrentPC%\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ManagementSoftware\" /v "CMN" /t "REG_SZ" /d "\\server\CMN\"
reg add "\\%vCurrentPC%\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ManagementSoftware\CMN\" /v "DBLocation" /t "REG_SZ" /d "\\server\CMN\"
reg add "\\%vCurrentPC%\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Installer\Products\44AFB2215A150C7448D73E8EC48716A0\SourceList\Net\" /v "1" /t "REG_EXPAND_SZ" /d "\\server\CMN\4.0.0\WIN\"
goto :eof
