Hi Robert,

 

Yep. we all give up on Binary Keys. Microsoft doesn't support them under ADM
Templates. 

 

PolicyMaker has a free utility that allows you to add registry keys directly
via Group Policies
http://www.desktopstandard.com/PolicyMakerRegistryExtension.aspx

 

The one downside is that it runs as an additional Group Policy Extension, so
you have to install it on all machines. which is a lot of work for a couple
of  measly registry keys

Subject: [gptalk] Pushing preferences via ADM files

 

All, 
OK, I give up.  Anyone know of a way to push a registry entry via GPO/ADM
looking something like this:? 

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar\WebBrowser] 
"{01E04581-4EEE-11D0-BFE9-00AA005B4383}"=hex:81,45,e0,01,ee,4e,d0,11,bf,e9,0
0,\ 
  aa,00,5b,43,83,10,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,01,e0,32,f4,01,00,00,00 
"{0E5CBF21-D15F-11D0-8301-00AA005B4383}"=hex:21,bf,5c,0e,5f,d1,d0,11,83,01,0
0,\ 
 
aa,00,5b,43,83,22,00,1c,00,00,00,00,00,06,00,00,00,01,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,\

  00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00 

I've downloaded Alan's tool, will gladly pay the $50 if it will do something
like this, but it didn't allow me to put these binary strings.

These, btw, are prefernce settings to remove the AddressBar from IE6.  I
tried using a policy called NoAddressBar = 1, but it was not consistent,
perhaps conflicting with other GPO settings we have.  So I used REGMON to
capture which registry entry was being modified when I turned off/on the
Address Bar (View/toolbars/AddressBar).  Now I just have to figure out a way
to send this via GPO.

Any and all ideas would be very much appreciated.
