Registry Entries

Controls the creation of registry entries.


You can use dynamic tokens to extend Workspace Environment Management actions to make them more powerful.

Registry Value List

A list of your existing registry entries. You can use Find to filter the list by name or ID against a text string.

To add a registry entry

  1. Use the context menu Add command.
  2. Enter details in the New Registry Value dialog tabs, then click OK.

Fields and controls

Name. The display name of the registry entry, as it appears in the registry entry list.

Description. This field is only shown in the edition/creation wizard and allows you to specify additional information about the resource.

Registry Value State. Toggles whether the registry entry is enabled or disabled. When disabled, it will not be processed by the agent even if assigned to a user.

Target Path. The registry location in which the registry entry will be created. Workspace Environment Management can only create Current User registry entries, so you do not need to preface your value with %ComputerName%\HKEY_CURRENT_USER – this is done automatically.

Target Name. The name of your registry value as it will appear in the registry (e.g. NoNtSecurity).

Target Type. The type of registry entry that will be created.

Target Value. The value of the registry entry once created (e.g. 0 or C:\Program Files)

Run Once. By default, Workspace Environment Management creates registry entries every time the agent refreshes. Select this check box to make Workspace Environment Management create the registry entry only once - on the first refresh - rather than on every refresh. This speeds up the agent refresh process, especially if you have many registry entries assigned to your users.

Action Type. Describes what type of action this resource is.

To import registry files

  1. In the ribbon click Import Registry File.
  2. Enter details in the Import from Registry dialog, then click OK.

Fields and controls

Registry File Name. This field allows you to browse to browse to a .reg file containing the registry settings you want to import into Workspace Environment Management. For best results, the .reg file should be generated from a clean environment that has only the registry settings you wish to import applied to it.

Scan. This will scan the .reg file and display a list of registry settings contained inside it.

Registry Values List. This lists all of the registry values contained within your imported .reg.

Enable Imported Items. If disabled, newly-imported registry keys are disabled by default.

Prefix Imported Item Names. This adds a prefix to the name of all registry items imported via this wizard (e.g. “XP ONLY” or “finance”), to make it easier to organise your registry entries.


The wizard cannot import registry entries with duplicate names. If your .reg file contains more than one registry entry with the same name (as displayed in the Registry Values List), select one of these entries for import and rename it if you want to import the others.
