Registry GPO not applying registry entry

    Question

  • I've got a new GPO to create a registry entry.  When I export the working entry as-is from a workstation, here is the path:

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Common\Security\Trusted Protocols\All Applications\myapp:]

    I created a new GPO and linked the GPO to an OU containing only my user account.  I run gpresult /r and I see the GPO is being applied to my user account. However, the registry entry does not show up on my computer.  What am I doing wrong?

    Preferenceshide
    Windows Settingshide
    Registryhide
    All Applications (Order: 1)hide
    Generalhide
    Action Create
    Properties
    Hive HKEY_CURRENT_USER
    Key path HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Common\Security\Trusted Protocols\All Applications
    Value name (Default)
    Value type REG_SZ
    Value data myapp:
    Commonhide
    Options
    Stop processing items on this extension if an error occurs on this item No
    Run in logged-on user's security context (user policy option) No
    Remove this item when it is no longer applied No
    Apply once and do not reapply No

    You already defined the HIVE as HKEY_CURRENT_USER
     
    The Keypath is = Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Common\[...]
