Hello,

I have a reg file with the below lines

reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management" /v FeatureSettingsOverride /t REG_DWORD /d 8 /f
reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management" /v FeatureSettingsOverrideMask / t REG_DWORD /d 3 /f

I run it on a Windows 2012 server and I am getting this message:
Cannot import c:\....\test.reg.  The specified file is not a registry script.  You can only import binary registry files from within the registry editor.

Please advise.  

Thanks.
