Script to modify Default User Profile

Recommended Posts

I have a short script to modify some HKCU reg entries for the Default user. I want to apply this to the reference image so it gets applied to new users. I know this can be done with GPO. I am using MDT and have it pause after the script runs so I can test it. It is says completed successfully but it doesnt do anything. Even when I run it from a cmd prompt manually during the pause. This does not work when running it manually on a machine either.

This is the script

@ECHO OFF
REM *****************************************************
REM  Script configures the Default User Profile
REM *****************************************************
echo.
echo. Load default profile HIVE and apply registry settings.
echo.
REM Load the default profile hive
REG LOAD HKU\TEMP C:\Users\Default\NTUSER.DAT

REM Configure the default user profile

REG IMPORT HKCU.reg

REM Unload the default profile hive
REG UNLOAD HKU\TEMP

 

This is the reg file:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

; Disable let apps use my advertising ID.

[hku\temp\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AdvertisingInfo]
"Enabled"=dword:0

; Change explorer default view to Thic PC.
