Window XP reg add access denied Tags: Registry Windows XP Last response: July 7, 2011 12:59 AM in Windows XP Share thakera June 27, 2011 2:29:55 AM I want to ADD a registry key using a .bat file. I am getting an error "Access Denied". Batch file looks as follows: REG ADD "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Preferences" /v AcceptedPrivacyStatement /T REG_DWORD /D 1 /f Following is the what i see when i run .bat file with pause command. We currently have Novell environment and Novell Group Policies are not reliable at all. Is there a way I can ADD a registry key without user interaction? Thank you.

Is registry editing disabled by policies? You can do what you want, just make sure however you run it, the user the file runs under has rights to edit the registry, and to that key specifically.
