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

I want to deploy the attached registry settings.
This registry will add Arabic language as keyboard so the users toggle english and arabic.

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
