    What is the registry path you are sending this to? If it is HKEY_CURRENT_USER then the reg data will be sent to the user hive of the user account performing the deployment. If you can't post the path or attach the file (due to public concerns) will you send it to our support email address?

    I wasn't using current user settings, I know that is a bugger....(i am using Hkey local machine)

    I have it working with 2 separate installers.....I created installer that ran it LOCALLY with the "INCLUDE ENTIRE DIR..." checked.....this works with the REG FILE ONLY....

    I was trying to add the reg inside the batch file...that is not working and may be more tricky than what I thought....simple regedit /s does not work for 64bit systems....as far as using pdq deploy to install using a batch file. I even tried the old ........IF exist (%systemroot%/syswow64) ELSE use syswow64\regedit.exe......still no go...

    I was doing a simple copy dir and add reg file.....  the copy ALWAYS works....but the reg file...nope...unless done alone...

    NEXT challenge would be to call another installer using an installer.....lol...prob can be done using cmdline options....but haven't looked into it...

    I AM updating windows defender signatures this way.....even though online everywhere it does not work...the reason why I am updating it (while not using it)....nessus reports it as a hit...(high risk)

    if anyone out there wants to give it a shot.......download mpas-fe.exe and try remote installing it anyway you can.....good luck...

    Will you export your installer and send it to our support site? I am unable to duplicate this behavior. I can successfully import a .reg file on 64 bit system from a bat file as well as just using the reg file as the installer file. It would also be very helpful to see your bat file.

    As far as mpas-fe, did you try the mpas-fex64.exe when running on 64 bit targets?

    OK....I changed it.....so I will have to recreate one that doesn't work and send it in....should not be a problem... 

    I do not have a lot of 64bit systems....yet...but I could not get the 32bit to work....so I didn't even try the 64bit...

    Can you see if you can add or change a reg key in this area....

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Defender\Signature Updates]

    It appears taht the Windows Defender keys in the Registry are locked down by default, even the Administrators group doesn't have write access.

    at first, it didnt appear to work on win64...but since I changed how I did it....it works
