    HKEY_CURRENT_USER registry change does not save in Audit Mode


    I am preparing a Lenovo Flex 4 laptop for Windows Out of Box Experience (OOBE). Looks like Lenovo's default touchpad driver configuration is misconfigured such that two finger tap (right click) does not work. I found setting the registry under [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Elanttech\Smartpad] for entries Tap_Two_Finger and Tap_Two_Finger_Enable both to 1 from 7 and 0, respectively, allows the two finger tap on touchpad to work again when I restart back into Audit Mode. Unfortunately, changing this setting in Audit Mode for OOBE does not save once Sysprep prepares the laptop for OOBE and I enter Audit Mode again after. I presume this is because this is a setting under CURRENT USER and OOBE removes/resets all those settings due to reset user? The key is not available under any other registry entries. Any solutions to this issue?

    :)

  3. HKEY_CURRENT_USER registry change does not save in Audit Mode

    Welcome to TenForums!

    Actually, I have a script that I use regularly. It changes quite a few things in the Current User space. It works just fine for me after a sysprep.

    I'd love to know a bit more about your workflow to see if we can figure out where the problem is.

    Maybe you could test one of the registry changes that I typically make to see if it works following a sysprep. This one is a good example because it is easy to verify visually that it works. This registry change simply causes the clock on the taskbar to also show seconds. Normally it just shows hours and minutes.

    Take the text below, drop into a text file with a .REG extension and double-click to run. Of cource, you can make the change manually if you prefer.

    Make clock on taskbar show seconds:
    Code:
    Revert back to showing only hours and minutes:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER registry change does not save in Audit Mode

    I actually figured it out. Unchecking the 'generalize' option button in the System Preparation Tool allows my registry changes to be saved. Another thing that may have done it is I also found the same elantech folder entry under under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control where I made the same changes and now it seems to save the changes as long as I don't check the generalize option in the System Preparation Tool
