1500 POINTS!!!! POLICY HELP NEEDED!

By gw4goofy ·
I need to create a policy to restrict users from installing any software "of course there are exceptions" these users run a custom app that the DBA modifies regularly by sending users an update.reg file with the registry keys they need to run. Theyjust double click the new .reg file to merge the settings into their local registry.

We have already create the restricion policy that stops software installs. It worked now we have added the policy entries to enable edit of registry, added regedit.exe and regedit32.exe to programs they can run but they get a generic policy restriction when the run the new reg key updates.

What other settings do we need in the policy to allow them the abilty to merge new registry keys? Is there anothersolution I'm overlooking? We don't want to run a remote regedit on 40 or so machines...

I hope the question now gives enough information that the masses of Tech Guru's out there can come up with a solution.

I'll bet 1500 points on it..
Are there specific restrictions to allow them to modify only a certain key?

everything can be found at http://www.regedit.com. search for the part where you restrict applications and only those you list in the registry are the only ones that will run.

open regedt32 (local or remote!) search the desired key, mark it then on the menu-bar "security" - "permissions". add the user or group the right "full control". thats it.
