Modifying Registry Key on Windows Embedded 7


  • In my current environment we run Wyse Thin Clients with Windows Embedded 7. For some reason by default locking the workstation is disabled for local users via the key HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\DisableLockWorkstation.

    The issue that I am running into is changing this to enable locking. The key is not configurable in group policy. The HKCU for user configuration only goes to HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies there is no system folder. I have attempted to add it by listing it in the key path manually and adding the value and data type but it does not work using any of the Action types, update, create or replace.

    Additionally I have attempted to place this in a logon batch file which adds the key, but the local user does seem to have permissions to add the key or modify the key.

    Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
