Have you thought of using group policy so they get setting when policy refreshes, or even just add to login script if hkcu so it can run as the user?

You can use a .REG fil exported from the registry key in question with regedit command or use a REG.exe command, e.g.

reg add HKCU\key\key /v Value /t REG_DWORD /d 3

Obviously don't know what you are trying to add but if you can give an example by showing a screen short, or export to a .reg file (right click in regedit and export)

Depending upon what the key is there might already been a policy you can just set and push down to the clients automatically or create a new one too.
