I have the following registry key that I want to copy into the registry with
a batch file on shutdown [-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet
Explorer\TypedURLs] named blankurls.reg. I have a batch file set up in the
WSH in the on Shutdown property as follows; Regedit.exe /s F:\Registry
Backup\blankurls.reg If I double click the registry entry it works fine,
but if I try to execute it with the batch file, it doesn't.

Can anyone tell me the proper syntax to use in a batch file so it works?
Thanks

Jim

Jim,

I'm not sure I completely follow the line: I have a batch file set up in the
WSH in the on Shutdown property as follows[...]

Where do you have the batch file set up to run this on shutdown?

Also, can you paste the contents of the batch file and the error and/or
errorlevel it returns with?

Best Regards,
G. Samuel Hays

I have the batch file in my system32 directory and I'm using the Windows
Scripting Host to run it at shutdown using the MMC gpedit.msc snap in under
startup and shutdown scripts. The batch file simply says:

Regedit.exe /s F:\Registry Backup\blankurls.reg

The batch file doesn't return any errors, it simply doesn't copy the
registry key into the registry like it's supposed too. Any ideas?

Jim

I guess the better question would have been:What are you trying to do? You
maybe able to enter the registry directly to change what you want. Please
post back. It's hard to tell you wether what you are doing is right or wrong
unless we can understand what your goal is. Post back.
