    I am trying to tweak some Win7x64 IE10 and Media Player settings for all users and was trying to use the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components" but I am doing it wrong and wondered if anyone else uses this or could possibly help me with it.

    Well taking this in small steps I created a batch file with the following code but it doesn't work

    Code:
    reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\OPTN-MP12" /d "Optimum Networks Active Setup Media Player"
    reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\OPTN-MP12" /v "Version" /d "1" /t REG_SZ /f
    reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\OPTN-MP12" /v "IsInstalled" /d "1" /t REG_DWORD /f
    reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\OPTN-MP12" /v "ComponentID" /d "Media Player Config" /t REG_SZ /f
    reg add "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\OPTN-MP12" /v "StubPath" /d "reg add HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Preferences /v "AcceptedPrivacyStatement" /d "1" /t REG_DWORD /f"
