regedit not working in login script

I've created a login script running on a windows 2008 domain controller.  The script uses msiexec to install an msi file and also imports a registry file that's copied to their root c drive using regedit /s.  The script runs against an ou containing users that have local administrative rights.  When the users log on, the msi file installs on the user's computer, but the registry file does not get imported.  When I manually click on the batch file under a user's account, the registry file imports.

I'd suggest to use GPPYou need to install GPP extention for XP if not already done:http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943729/en-usAnd apply the registry setting by GPP (Guide for HKLM but this works for HKCU as well if you configure within User Config)http://www.windowsitpro.com/article/registry2/q-is-there-an-easy-way-to-change-a-registry-setting-on-specific-servers-.aspx

Thanks SGrossmann for your input.  I tried using GPP and used the registry wizard to input the values that I'd like to change on the client computers; however, when I ran rsop.msc on one of the client computers, it doesn't show the registry changes from the GPO.  It does, however, show other options from GPP that I've modified, such as restricted users.  Any ideas? Thanks.

Where did you run the rsop? on clients it does not display GPP at all, you need to run the result set out of the gpmc console.

The easiest way to check if the settings are applied is to look into the registry if the settings are configured.

The GPO wasn't pushed out to the clients, but I found a workaround to it.  Thanks!
