Remove registry DWord in HKCU

Hi all,

I need to remove the DWORD registry from the HKCU. I found the following script through other forums. When manually I run the batch script, it removes the registries, but through the deployment tool radia it does not.

here is the batch script

@echo off
echo REGEDIT4> %TEMP%.\T1.DAT
echo [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings]>> %TEMP%.\T1.DAT
echo "Receive Timeout"=->> %TEMP%.\T1.DAT
REGEDIT /S %TEMP%.\T1.DAT
del %TEMP%.\T1.DAT

 

And the command line to run this in radia is

hide.exe cmd.exe /q /c C:\location\PreInstall.cmd

Please guide me , if i need to do any changes, or how I can get this working

Thanks in advance

How many keys are you deleting? Why not use REG DELETE?

REG DELETE KeyName [/v ValueName | /ve | /va] [/f]


Comments:
  • Just one under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Receive Timeout which has some value

    So you mean
    REG DELETE HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings [/v Receive Timeout | /ve |/va] [/f]

    This does NOT remove manually itself.. Is my syntax wrong? - shamu99 10 years ago
    • REG DELETE HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings /v "Receive Timeout" /f - dugullett 10 years ago
  • You can also try "reg delete /?" (w/o quotes) into a CMD prompt, and it will give you switches. - dugullett 10 years ago
  • Copy the followig code in a txt file:

    REGEDIT4

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings]
    "Receive Timeout"=-

    Save it with reg extension

    Create a batch file with this code:

    @echo off
    regedit /s yourfilename.reg

If the problem only occurs when using your deployment solution (Radia), I would say the problem is that your script references HKEY_CURRENT_USER which will represent the account being used to run the script (likely a service account or local system account). I don't know Radia enough to say, but if you can, specify that the script should run in the context of the current user. You might also try using a logon script as this does run in the context of the local user.

I tried both brandeirofd and bkelly, it manually works but I still have the same issue when deploying... I tried running per user when deploying, it did  not work either..
