Try this:

reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\NUVISION NETWORKS\SurePOS" /v Address /t REG_DWORD /d 0000006a /f

If you have spaces, make sure you enclose your value or path in quotes.

Okay that did it thanks, is there a cleaner way to just change the value?  It wants a yes or no to overwrite after that?

Add the /f switch. It forcibly applies the change or creates the value if it doesn't exist.
