I've got a REG_BINARY registry key that I'd like to set via GPO. However, the GPO interface to add registry settings simply has a 'Value Data' text field.

I can set the type to REG_BINARY, but what format is the text field expecting the data in so that the key is correctly set?

Should I be converting my data to Hex before entering it here, or should I be doing this in a completely different way?

I've never personally tested it, but according to this example, it should be in Hex format.

You're right. Sorry to hear that, I answered this question long ago and it was active. I can't remember the exact details, however the main point was the value had to be entered in Hex. –  Massimo Feb 26 at 21:02

You could use a bat file to do it and run is as a start up script
