Windows 7: cmd question regarding adding registry

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
cmd question regarding adding registry

When I run this test.reg

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders]

it will change the download folder directory to D:\Downloads

How do I code this in CMD ?

I have tried the following but does not work.

REG ADD "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders" /v "{374DE290-123F-4565-9164-39C4925E467B}" /t REG_SZ /d hex(2):44,00,3a,00,5c,00,44,00,6f,00,\
77,00,6e,00,6c,00,6f,00,61,00,64,00,73,00,00,00 /f

Please help and thank you.

Once you have a .reg file just run

regedit /s foo.reg

It will run silent
