WinZip Courier 4.0 HKEY Current User settings not applying via SCCM 2012 SP1

I’ve been having issues installing HKEY Current User settings to machines through SCCM 2012 SP1. When installing the package locally on a machine using a command line, the package installs successfully and writes to the HKEY Current User but when deploying the package through SCCM 2012 SP1, HKEY Current User settings will not apply. See the fix applied below.

  1. Create a .reg file and include the settings that you want to write to HKEY Current User
  2. Create a . bat file to call the .reg file that was created on step 1.
  3. Create a .reg file and include Active Setup to call the .bat file that was created on step 2
  4. Add reg import %~dp0 to your command line to call the .reg file created on step 3

Users will need to log-off  or reboot after the install in order to apply the settings to HKEY Current User.

See samples below

Active Setup .reg file calling the .bat file

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\{CD95F661-A5C4-11AF-B2CC-ABCD21A325BE}]
@=”WinZip Courier Setup”
“Version”=”4”
“StubPath”=”C:\\Windows\\Packages\\Corel_WinZipCourier_4.0_ENG_R9\\Set_Encryption.bat”

  1. {CD95F661-A5C4-11AF-B2CC-ABCD21A325BE} – Any unique name  – I used the GUI ID
  2. @=”Any Name”
  3. “Version”=”Version”
  4. “StubPath”=”Path to the.bat file”

Hope this helps.
