Specify Configuration File on Startup

Postby cosine » Thu Feb 10, 2011 10:56 pm

I am trying to pre-populate the ouput profiles for a computer lab installation. All attempts using the registry have failed. The ProcessCmd values get wiped out. Is there a way to specify a configuration file on startup? Or has anyone figured out any way to define the output profile automatically for all users?

Thanks.

In case it is helpful, I found a workaround. I had to write a script (VBScript) that populated the registry with the necessary values. Then I pointed the shortcut to the script. Unfortunately, one cannot simply export and import a registry file as the required values include linefeeds. Registry import does not support line feeds or carriage returns.

If there is a way to specify a configuration file, I would still like to know. If not, I think this would be an useful feature to add to future versions.
