Windows 7: Method for checking .REG file success

12 Aug 2016   #1

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64-bit SP1
Method for checking .REG file success

Aside from the obvious task of navigating to a registry key that has been altered by way of a .REG file, is there any other way to determine if a custom .reg file was successful in its task? More so, whether or not access may or may not have been denied to a specific registry key?

When you run a batch file, you can look over the results in the command prompt and see which commands were executed successfully or were denied, so I guess that is more what I am wondering is possible with reg files

Looks like I found the culprit (it was only 10 keys) however, I still wonder if there is a way to create an overview to determine the key without proper permission.

If you do that task often enough and to a lot of computers, then it is worth your time to use a scripting language. I use AutoIt to change the registry of dozens of remote computers. You can get a variety of errors to let you know what (if anything) went wrong. You can read the value back as the final check.
