Registry path for Userinit.exe path changes on clone machine RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Team,

    I have a issue and want to understand how userinit registry works. So the below is the scenario:

    I have a Virtual machine where I have modified the registry path for userinit.exe (HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\userinit) to c:\programfiles\userint\userinit.exe

    I restart the machine and the path remains the same.

    But when I clone a machine and power it on and check for this registry key that changes as below:


    I want to know why this is changing and what triggers this change.

    I already did a search on this and do not find anything relevant apart from the below link:


    But still I am unable to understand what is causing the change in registry value.

    Can anyone through some light on this?

    Also, include those details in your post.
