Posted on 2013-02-07

I'm using the following to modify the ntuser.dat of the default user:

1. Backup C:\Documents and Settings\Default User\ntuser.dat
2. Reg load HKU\ZZZ "C:\Documents and Settings\Default User\ntuser.dat"
3. Reg Import c:\test.reg
4. Reg unload HKU\ZZZ

However when it's loaded and I have done the import, I cannot see the key in regedit, any ideas ?

This is using Windows XP Professional

Hello
when I load HKU\ZZZ the key OFFICE does not appear, althought it was in HKEY_USERS\.default.

I import test.reg and put correctly in HKU\ZZZ changing in test.reg HCU by HKEY_USERS.

When I  unload ZZZ and load again, the change remains.

Remenber that test.reg should begin with

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

at first line (in XP, other versions can change number)
