Push Registry Keys Group Policy

I am trying to push registry settings via Group Policy.  I have already added under Computer Configuration/Security Settings/Registry in the GPO.

I've also added Authenticated Users and Domain Computers with FULL CONTROL to the key in the Scope settings. Is it posssible to push registry key settings through GPO instead of having to create a ADM template?

Attached the reg key I am trying to add.  

We have a combination of Windows XP and Windows 7 clients. Know Windows 7 functionality is a little different in a Windows 2003 forest level functionality domain.

Which is the best way to push these settings? M-Files-Nw-Reg.reg

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I usually just use a batch file as logon script to put the reg file in place, it's easiest and fastest way:

Group policy preferences makes this much easier


You can use gpp since you have windows 7 boxes, xp will need the client side extensions

How well do MST Transforms work?  On GPO's Authenticated users group needs to be removed from the scope correct?
