Enable Clear Text in Win 8.1

I am working on one application packaging request.The user wants to enable the Clear text in Win 8.1 environment for better view of the application otherwise it will be challenge for him to view the application.

I have got current user keys to enable it but they require reboot once they have updated.If i run these keys through Active setup it requires 2 reboots to enable it.

Please let me know how we will deploy with one reboot to enable clear text.

Regards'

Do you mean "ClearType"?

That shouldn't require a reboot. Right click an empty spot on your desktop, and select "Personalize". Then in the "See also" section select "Display". Now you should have the "Adjust Clear Type" option available, and if you select that you can enable clear type and also adjust it so it looks best. You will need the admin account's password to force the change, but the system shouldn't need to reboot for that.

I am packaging application that will be deployed to more than 100 workstation.We dont need manual enable as I am going to include it in the my package.

I found 2 registry keys (HKCU)but that requires 2 reboots when we deploy it through sccm.

For some things remote configuration makes sense, but not for this. In order for ClearType to work properly, it must be calibrated, and for that the user of the PC must sit in front of it and do the adjustments according to what he sees. This should also be done by the user who normally uses that PC, as the vision of each person is individual to him, so what looks OK for him might not be readable for another.

I have to deploy these registry keys to the workstation, but these requires reboot twice if i include them in my MSI.

Is their any way to update it to User workstations with only one reboot from MSI.

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]

"FontSmoothingType"=dword:00000002
"FontSmoothing"="2"

Any solution for this.

As I mentioned above already, this particular setting makes absolutely no sense to automate, as the person using the PC must sit in front of it to do the calibration so it works best for his eyes. It's something that must be individually done as everyone has different eyes and sees things differently.
