So did you use a login script or group policy preferences to do this?

Is the GPO linked to where your servers are?

Thanks

As You have given the link and the link says , its fairly straight forward and easy.

Open up your GPO you want to use and navigate to:

Computer Config>Preferences>Windows Settings>Registry

Create a new registry Item (or use the wizard to) and set the appropriate info.

I have been doing this alot lately to clean up old Adobe Reader/Flash and Java installed that left key behind.

Thanks.

I performed the following steps
- Exported the registry from different windows 2003 server to a file called as Lang.reg
- We create a new Group Policy object and link it to the OU
-  Edited “User Configuration | Windows Settings | Scripts (Logon/Logoff).
- Under the Logon node, I add the settings Regpo (with the /s switch):
- I copied the Lang.reg file to SYSVOL folder
- Gpupdate /force.

Thanks

why are you not deploying via GPP instead?

have you tried placing regedit.exe in the SYSVOL folder where your .reg file is?

You mean I shall copy regedit.exe to sysvol folder, it means that it will run regedit.exe from sysvol not from default windows folder ? Is that what you mean ?

Thanks

Hi,
I used Group Policy Preferences
Computer Configuration > Preferences, Windows Settings, Registry. Right click and select new registry item.
gpp_regI applied to OU
But still its not working.
