Best pass for applying registry tweaks?


Recommended Posts

Which pass would be the best for applying registry tweaks?

I think waiting until the end would be too late for some of my tweaks.

Obviously I will be testing on my own, but I don't have much RAM so it takes me a while to test possibilities.

Seems what I want to do only makes sense in a couple of the passes anyways. Still extremely new to this vista unattended business. Thanks for the heads up on FirstLogonCommands, i'll definitely be needing it.

This is waay more complex than I expected but it's really nice too. Microsoft got it right with this installation system.

This is how I add regs during FirstLogonCommands:

I made a self installing sfx with the completed reg file with all Vista tweaks in one.

<FirstLogonCommands>

<SynchronousCommand wcm:action="add">

<CommandLine>%AppsRoot%Install\reg.exe</CommandLine>

<Description>Apply Registry Settings</Description>

<Order>60</Order>

</SynchronousCommand>

This works satisfactorily for me.

I did the same, but with a regtweak.cmd that executes in FirstLogonCommand.

After making a new account and after a reboot the tweaks are onely for current user, so please tell me how to get this working.

So it work....as long as you don't make any new account(s) after applying your tweaks at FirstLogonCommand.

Added in my xml:

	
<FirstLogonCommands>
<SynchronousCommand wcm:action="add">
<Order>1</Order>
<CommandLine>cmd /c %systemroot%\setup\scripts\regtweaks.cmd</CommandLine>
</SynchronousCommand>
</FirstLogonCommands>

My regtweaks.cmd looks like this:

@echo off
REGEDIT /S %systemroot%\setup\scripts\REGTWEAKS.REG
EXIT
