Add Registry key for Office 2013 to Enable Modern authentication

I'm using a package in PDQ Deploy to add 3 Office 2013 registry keys to user registry on Windows 7 and 10 operating systems where the run option I'm using is "User logged in" with interactive mode with user logged in to computer, as this package acted as keys on the computer with the active session, with the user logged in.

What is the problem I have?
I need to do a deployment of the package non-interactively where the computers connected with the set disconnected, as the number of computers I need to deploy is more than 300 computers.

To exemplify what I did, follow the attachments with images of the package that I created and tested.
Address with reference of office keys you need to add.

  • I'm not fully understanding the issue you're having. Could you clarify the following?

    Probably want to make sure this condition is set to "only run if a user is logged on".

  • Hello Andrew!

    I will try to better clarify the situation I have in my environment.
    I don't have a problem or failure to deploy the package that creates the 3 registry keys.

    The situation I have is that the Office 2013 registry keys that Microsoft provides to be activated in the OS is HKEY_CURRENT_USER
    The deployment package, when sent to a group of computers, manages to create the 3 registry keys when the user has the session active, disconnected or blocked, but if the computer is in Log-off mode, the PDQL Deploy implementation completes getting the status of success, but the keys were not created.

    What is my goal?
    Because it's registry keys in HKCU I need to deploy the package to modify registry keys in all profiles on Windows.

    Every help is welcome!

    If you need to deploy these registry keys for every user that logs into the machine, this would probably be best accomplished using a GPO.

  • Hi Mike!
    I did some tests with the GPO but I didn't have success with the creation of the keys, but I will give the GPO a new chance.

    Thanks

  • Make sure your GPO is targeted to the right OU or container and that it runs in the user's context.

  • Hi Mike!

    In my tests with 2 Windows 7 and Windows 10 computers I used the GPO and I was successful in creating the registry keys for the HKEY_CURRENT_USER

    My next step is to create a filter in the GPO to apply to all users with Office 2013 who are currently 250.
    Thanks for the help and tips!
    See you
