I need to Install a .Reg file into registry silently! On a question I posted here a month ago, I asked about preventing the dreaded "Desktop Recovery" appearing for no reason after a re-start OR cold boot. Because of the answer I got here on this site,
I was able to track it down to a couple of commands in the registry.
I corrected it and that was sorted - or so I thought!
As it turned out, it still happens, so what I want to do is to merge the correct settings from a .Reg file at the boot stage either via a .Bat file OR by shortcut in "Start-Up" - whichever is best.
The trouble is, as you will all know - activating a ".Reg" file then produces the confirmation request dialogue box - followed by the job completion dialogue box.
I want this stage to be silent!
Is there a command line way like a "/Q" for quiet or something of that nature. It's been a while since I worked in DOS (I used to LOVE working in DOS - many years ago ) and I'm not up to date on the commands available.
Do I need to use the Cmdow.exe program to hide it & if so how?
My guess on the cause is that a GUI software is writing to the registry at some point - changing :
and it's that 110 command that is causing all the trouble!
When the value is 0, the desktop is fine, but at 110, it defaults to the "Desktop Recovery" screen!
I can set the value to 0 & it will stay the same for several re-boots and then with no intervention - for no reason - it changes itself to 110!!!! AAAHHHHHH!!!! I had also thought of deleting the "Desktop Recovery" file and re-naming the chosen wallpaper instead but I can't remember the name of the Desktop Recovery file.
Thanks for your time - your ideas and suggestions on this would be gratefully received. Cheers for now.
