cmd script to set some registry settings

Recommended Posts



i build a package to deploy 7-zip. That works fine.

Now i want to define the file extensions that opens with 7-zip (they are not set by default und i didnt find any switch) with the following cmd script:



SET Extn=7z-0 arj-4 bz2-2 bzip2-2 cab-7 cpio-7 deb-11 gz-14 gzip-14 iso-8 lha-6 lzh-6 rar-3 rpm-10 split-9 swm-15 tar-13 taz-5 tbz-2 tbz2-2 tgz-14 tpz-14 wim-15 z-5 zip-1

FOR %%j IN (%Extn%) DO (

FOR /F "tokens=1,2 delims=-" %%A IN ("%%j") DO (

REG ADD %SC%\.%%A /VE /D "7-Zip.%%A" /F

REG ADD %SC%\7-Zip.%%A /VE /D "%%A Archive" /F

REG ADD %SC%\7-Zip.%%A\DefaultIcon /VE /D "%PROGRAMFILES%\7-Zip\7z.dll,%%B" /F

REG ADD %SC%\7-Zip.%%A\shell\open\command /VE /D "\"%PROGRAMFILES%\7-Zip\7zFM.exe\" \"%%1\"" /F




The Script works in a normal cmd.


So ive created a new Programm in the 7-Zip package (commandline: config.cmd. After that, i added the new Programm to my TS.

But it always fails with the Error Code 0x800700FF


Whats wrong?

We can use PowerShell to translate the Win32 error code into a [more] useful description:


PS C:\Users\trevor.sullivan> [componentmodel.win32exception]0x800700FF

The extended attributes are inconsistent




Hmmmm, in this case, it's still a bit of a confusing error message. What extended attributes -- is it talking about file attributes? Probably not, since I'm not aware of any attribute "extensions" for the NTFS filesystem.


Here's one thing ... as a best practice, I always recommend that when building and testing packages or scripts in SCCM, before deploying it through SCCM, simply try running the command line as the Local System account. How do you do this? Download Sysinternals psexec, and use the -s parameter to invoke a command as Local System. This will help to ensure that your command still works even when SCCM executes it as Local System, rather than your user credentials.


Hope this helps.
