Hi Experts,

for a signature script designed by our team I have to give each user a special right in the registry.
The users must be able to write in HKEY_CURRENT_USER.
Can you show me how to set this right for each user ?

HKEY_CURRENT_USER's persmissions are defined (by default) to give the currently logged in user Full Control over the key and it's sub-keys.  This is because HKEY_CURRENT_USER is (in reality) not a key at all, it is a pointer to the content of the HKEY_USERS\<Security ID> (SID) of the current user subkey.

Quite right, but it depends. The hive HKCU is not writable through and through. What keys do you want to write to?
Also, elevation can stop you. Scripts that use regedit.exe /s are stopped by UAC, scripts that use reg.exe /import are not stopped...weird design by microsoft.

it is  a C# script for our company signature.
It looks to the AD and fields in AD, like name, surname phone, fax etc.

It does not matter why you do it... I asked how you do it, where does it write to :)
