You need to test if you can get it to work by changing script to point to HKLM

HKLM - Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ZoneMap\Domains\yourdomain.com

Create a DWORD 'http'.

prepare a reg file (you can export it from existing environment) and use from command-line

reg import <your_reg_file>

I think it's the most simply solution.

This script would add "download.microsoft.com" to the list of trusted sites.  You can replace with "*" to add all microsoft.com sites to trusted sites zone.
Const HKEY_CURRENT_USER = &H80000001

strComputer = "."
Set objReg=GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer &
"\root\default:StdRegProv")
strKeyPath = "Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet
Settings\" _
    & "ZoneMap\Domains\microsoft.com"

objReg.CreateKey HKEY_CURRENT_USER, strKeyPath

strValueName = "download"
dwValue = 2

objReg.SetDWORDValue HKEY_CURRENT_USER, strKeyPath, strValueName, dwValue

Open in new window
