Symptom

You need to set some registry settings for a proxy under windows. You want to do it via a logon script.

Cause

None

Solution

You can write a few lines of vbscript which can set the settings or import a certain registry file.

The registry file should look a bit like the following. Please note, this is an example and has to be changed for your environment.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings]
"ProxyServer"="Theproxy:8080"
"ProxyOverride"="Lubbyserver;mailhost;10.47.*;http://Somesite*;10.46.*;10.65.*;<local>"
"ProxyEnable"=dword:00000001

To load via a vbscript you can insert something like:

Dim WshShell
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell") 

WshShell.RegWrite "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ProxyServer", "Theproxy:8080", "REG_SZ"
WshShell.RegWrite "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ProxyEnable", 1, "REG_DWORD"
