Change a registry setting

#1 Post by anoble1 » 15 Nov 2013 07:21

How come this does not work? I am trying to prompt for a read receipt in Outlook. When I run this it does not change it. But I am able to change it manually and it work. Am I missing something?

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook\Options\Mail]
"Receipt Response"=dword:00000002

Have you tried right clicking and run as admim? also some of the global keys that are in use you may get a "cannot Import accessing the registry" error that prevents you from making any changes, Check permissions by right clicking on the key - Permissions - Advanced - under (account name) does it say permission = full control ? if read only then you will have to set permissions manually or better yet run a script that will change the reg file from read-only to full control permissions. I recenlty had the same issue and created a vbs script to do it all for me..take a look at links below for more info on this..DP 8)
