Modify reg from Batch

Discussion in 'Microsoft Windows 2000 Registry Archive' started by Raymond Jette, Jul 4, 2004.

  1. Good after noon,
    I dont know if this is the right place to post this or not so ill give it a
    try. Here's the problem. I have a registy key that has to be modified on
    about 3000 computers. If the key does not exist I will have to create it.
    This has to be done on Windows XP/2K and Windows 9X. I am thinking the best
    way to do this is with a batch file. I have been searching the internet for
    how to do this and I cant find much good information. Does anyone have any
    good information on how this can be done? Any good links?
    Thanks for the help,
    Ray

    Below is the key that I need changed:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ComputerAssociates\eTrustAntivirus\CurrentVersio
    n\SystemSetting
    Value: RTAboutBox

    Data: 0

    Using RegWrite method of VBScript may be your best bet. While my forte is
    the registry Torgeir's forte is VBScript so have a look at some of these for
    some ideas.
