I'm building an unattended XP SP1 CD with several registry tweaks.
But there's a poblem with unhiding Systemfiles.

I know the reg key is :
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced]
"ShowSuperHidden"=dword:00000001

When I load the Defaultuser ntuser.dat into the registry I can see the key is set correctly.
But with any user, the value doesn't even exist ? :) ?
manualy adding the value after installation works. But how do I get it to work with all users???

Help I'm desperate... :rolleyes: this is one of the last issues with my image when this works I can go and use it...

BTW I'm Using XPCreate in combination with Xplode and Config Select

You need to add a line to your cmdlines.txt for the HKCU portion of your automated build

"REGEDIT /S d:\XP_Installed_Programs\XPUserSettingsHKCU.reg"


That will install per user setting at the 11 min mark before the GUI changes to interactive mode and locks the file

uhm yeah I'm aware of that...

I'm using Xplode wich is called from the cmdlines.txt and that imports the reg keys

It imports owkay as any other reg tweak I use (checked in default users' NTUSER.DAT) (Most of them in the HKCU) but it doesn't pass down to new users, other tweaks do....

I'm lost :rolleyes:

FYI currently using about 60 regtweaks only 1 not working :)

The syntax is wrong. To enable showing system files, change the above to the code below and it should work

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced]
"ShowSuperHidden"=dword:00000001

Hope this works for you.

Try this.


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\SuperHidden]
"DefaultValue"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced]
"ShowSuperHidden"=dword:00000001

; To get rid of that annoying backwards warning.
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\Folder\SuperHidden]
"WarningIfNotDefault"=-

"SuperHidden"=dword:00000000

does this line,

"SuperHidden"=dword:00000000

should be '0' or '1'?

It's correct how he had it.

AND OMG, IT WORKS!
