I use windows vista but this question is for other windows versions as well.

When I double click to install a reg file I get this warning:

Adding information can unintentionally change or delete values and cause components to stop working correctly. If you do not trust the source of this information in myFile.reg, do not add it to the registry.

Is there any way to get rid of it and from the approval message after?

Why would you want this, if not for malicious purposes ? – b0fh Jul 20 '10 at 18:16

Regedit.exe supports a /s command-line switch to not display these messages. For example, to silently run the .reg file (with the /s switch) from a login script batch file, use the following syntax: regedit.exe /s path of .reg file

That might help you

Change the value of the key:



regedit.exe /s "%1"

Be VERY careful after doing so - that warning is there for good reason.
