Software Deployment Question

SCCM add HKCU key to all new users

05/02/2013 20752 views

I am deploying a new image and i want all users to have a specific registry key when they first log into the machine. Unfortunately it is a HKCU key so its not as easy. The key i want added is:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MINIE]

While doing some reasearch i found out about active setup. Will this be the best way to get this done? If so, can someone provide the steps to do it?


Thanks for any help.

Just create a PerUser program in SCCM and create a script to add what you want in the registry.

1) Active setup is one of the ways http://www.sepago.de/d/helge/2010/04/22/active-setup-explained

2) If you have sccm, you can also create a program that uses regedit.exe command to accomplish this purpose and assign to user + configure it to runs for every user who logs on to the computer. Hope this helps!

  • If you run a logon-script or similar tool (like Desktop Commander) that would be the best way to manage settings for your users. Alternative is to create a msi with just the key and ad the activesetup . Publish to all machines with SCCM and with first logon Your users will get the reg-entry.
