Reg,exe Add fails in XP

Good Afternoon,

Weird one.. I could do with help please.
I'm batch scripting URLs into IE Privacy Settings - Sites

This syntax works in Windows 7
Reg.exe ADD "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\P3P\History\" /t REG_DWORD /d 1

In XP, it errors with 'Error: Invalid command-line parameters'

I have concluded it is because I have not stated a value name for the REG_DWORD, as two other entries, which state a value name, work OK.
The name I need is '(Default)' but when this is specified, using /v,  a REG_SZ entry appears also named (Default) and I don't get the results I am after.

Hope this is clear.

You need to add "/ve" to change the empty value.
Reg.exe ADD "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\P3P\History\" /ve /t REG_DWORD /d 1
