My environment has a lot of legacy applications (not TSAWARE) which need to access scanners on our terminal servers (and need access to the WINDOWS\TWAIN_32 folder to do so).

Terminal Server redirects the Windows folder to a user profile folder, so I have to add registry keys to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Terminal Server\Compatibility\Applications to make these applications work correctly.

Can the Terminal Server Compatibility feature be enabled globally?
Alternatively is there a cleaner workaround than manually adding the registry keys for each application?
