    Hi Everyone,

    I have a single .reg file that I need to deploy to approximately 1500
    servers which are spanned across several local and international sites. What
    is the simplest way to do this please?

    Many thanks in advance.

    VBScript and Group Policy, set as a computer startup script if writing to HKLM, set as user startup script if writin to HKCU.

    Save the script below as .vbs and add to group policy. Make sure to edit the constants.

    This writes a REG_SZ (string) value, if you are using binary or DWORD see this link to edit the method.

    ~~~~~~start script

    option explicit

    dim wshell

    const reg1 = "HKLM\Software\Key_I_Want_To_Write_to"
    const reg1val = "value of the key I want"

    set wshell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

    wshell.regwrite reg1, reg1val, "REG_SZ"

    ~~~~~~ end script
