    I would like to add a registry entry into every users HKCU registry. Is
    that possible to do from a batch file?

    If so, what commands do I need to use? I need to add this registry key:


    And then I need to create another key called Locations under that.
    Then I need to add a string with a value for it.

    Is this possible to do from a batch file?

  3. You can do this using the 'reg' command:

    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Access\Security\Trusted Locations"
    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Access\Security\Trusted Locations\Locations"
    reg add /v string "HKCU\ ... \Locations" /t REG_MULTI_SZ /d dataHere

    where, of course, "..." contains the rest of the path.

    That works for the currently logged on user, but the OP wanted to do this to
    "every users HKCU registry" - that doesn't sound like he wants each of them
    to do it for themselves.

  5. True... but if it's part of the login script, it will be
    incorporated as each user logs in.
