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?
