Doctor Scripto

Summary: Use Windows PowerShell to create an entry in the Windows registry structure.

Hey, Scripting Guy! Question How do I create an entry in the Windows registry with Windows PowerShell?

Hey, Scripting Guy! Answer Use the New-ItemProperty cmdlet to add the information you need.
          For example, the following command makes a new name called StartMeUp with a value of Runit.exe 
          under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run:




NEW-ITEMPROPERTY $RegistryPath -Name $Name -Value $Value
