Solution:

.reg files can be executed on targets using a software delivery deployment job.

 

1. Create a package that executes the following command in a batch file and distribute it to the targets.

The command would be (depending on the OS you are updating)

regedit /s <regfile> 

OR

reg add /s <regfile>
