Unsolved regtweaks


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi u all,

I'm having a very annoying problem with 2 of my registry tweaks.

They just DON'T work :realmad:

I have searched, read and even used regshot for it to get it to work.

but still no luck. I get the strange feeling this is happening since the slipstreamed SP2. (??)

So please help me out with these 2 because i am unable to solve it:

;Removes Sign up with Passport Wizard when trying to sign in MSN Messenger
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Passport]
"RegistrationCompleted"=dword:00000001

;Stop MSN Messenger from Running on Windows Startup
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\MSNMessenger]
"AppSettings"=hex:22,04,00,00

They are executed at the T-12 during unattended install.

My the only thing that comes after it will be XPlode running at first logon for the installation of my app's and some cleanup things.

Please help me with these settings, i am getting a bit sick of these 2... :puke:

I'm going crazy!!! :wacko:

It's not working.

How does everybody manage these 2 tweaks and have got them to work.

I just want to lose the passport balloon and remove the checkmark at

"automatically run messenger when i log on to windows" !

It worked for me with SP1a, so i guess there must be something else with SP2 ??

You might want to consider using the Policies keyset for some of those tweaks...

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Messenger\Client]
"PreventAutoRun"=dword:00000001

Advantage is that this is a global machine-wide setting :)

I merged it into the registry, rebooted, and the **** thing popped up in my face..

Besides that, is this not for WINDOWS messenger? (wich is not installed through winnt.sif)

I want it for MSN messenger.

Other suggestions ??

Again used Regshot and it gave me the following result:

Before:
HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-746137067-606747145-725345543-500\Software\Microsoft\MSNMessenger\AppSettings: 22 06 00 00
After:
HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-746137067-606747145-725345543-500\Software\Microsoft\MSNMessenger\AppSettings: 22 04 00 00

Will these "\S-etc etc" registry setting be valid on a next unattended installation??

Then i can use this setting and is my problem partly solved!

Thnx, but no luck again.

Removed the check for running at startup.

Exported this key and again made sure msn messenger runs at startup.

Then merged it into the registry..

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\MSNMessenger]
"AppSettings"=hex:22,04,00,00

I dunno how to do this, but hopefully tonight someone overhere is getting the right one's for me! So i hope for the best with some help from you all!

be back in 2 hours to see if i'm getting lucky today! :}

Perhaps you should look for a value for messenger in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run or

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

and delete it after installing messenger.

This is what i found:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
"msnmsgr"="\"C:\\Program Files\\MSN Messenger\\msnmsgr.exe\" /background"

I'm going to try in a minute or so what happens when i remove it.

Don't know where the double "\\" comes from, just exported the key from regedit..

@ jrzycrim

Thank you very much, it worked like charme!!! :thumbup

Just deleted the last key and apply'd the tweak again, rebooted and voila..no msn messenger popping up!

Now i'm going to read/look through the forum how to get lost of this key through XPlode AFTER it is installed.

Thnx again, i'm happy

When you see a regshot saying "HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-2...." then you can replace it with "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\..."

So:

HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-746137067-606747145-725345543-500\Software\Microsoft\MSNMessenger\AppSettings

Will become

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\MSNMessenger\AppSettings
