    Hi there,
    I am trying to add a screensave on our Winterms S90 XPe but am having trouble modifying the registry so the “user” will automatically have the screensaver enabled after 10 minutes. When I run the registry file to add it seems to add it into the “Default User” registry hive not the “User” hive. I have tried:

    MR “saver.reg”
    MR “

    but they keep going into “Default User”

    I have made a cmd file with:

    REG LOAD HKUTempUser “C:Documents and SettingsUserNTUSER.DAT”
    REGEDIT /S C:saver.reg

    but it came up that the file is in use and then the rest of the cmd breaks. Yet if I run that cmd under “Administrator” it works and the “User” has then screensaver enabled by default.

    Any suggestions would be gratefully appreciated…

    Hi Stewy,

    The MR “saver.reg””user” should work as long as you have not renamed or changed the default user login. Under the XP downloads section I posted a .RAR of a load of Rapport scripts, one of which includes a screen saver if you want to see and example.

    Maybe the profiles are screwed up? Load a Wyse factory default image and push your script again and see if is works.

    Thanks for that. I did download the RAR file the other day and it gave me some ideas to try. I have a brand new Winterm sitting here so I will try the script on that today. I will also try your script from the RAR and see if that works…

    Will try and let you know more thru out the day…

    I’d look at 2 things

    Check the format of the .reg file.
    If memory serves, it needs to be PC ANSI, but often saved as PC UNICODE.

    You can use a free text editor like textpad to check file format and change if necessary.

    Also have you tried “User” instead of “user”
