Having trouble with a vbs script to set the homepages on my user's desktops.  On WinXP machines it works perfectly, however on my 2008 x64 Terminal Server farm when the script runs it gives me.....

Line:  5
Char:  1
Error:  Invalid root in registry key "HKLM\software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\Start Page"
Code:  80070005
Source:  WshShell.Regwrite

Here's the body of the script....


Set WSHShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

' home page URL
StartPage = "http://intranet.companyweb.com"
WSHShell.RegWrite "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\Start Page", StartPage
WSHShell.RegWrite "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\Start Page", StartPage


sorry I'm not that great with vbscripting but need to get this to work to get the sharepoint site set for the homepage globally in the environment.

Any help would be appreciated
