syspref and wmp.inf


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

I am running sysprep and deploying image. On creation of new user account an icon on the desktop and startmenu is created for windows media player. I do not want the icon on the desktop to be created. I hope someone can help which entries to modify under wmp.inf.


PS - Since it is my first post I will wait for the moderator to unblock me then I will upload file ^_^

I think thats actually created by unregmp2.exe

Try with the registry

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


So when unregmp2.exe is run with /Shortcuts it will check the registry and not create a desktop shortcut.

You can try it out on a live system, add the registry entry with your shortcut choice and run

%WinDir%\inf\unregmp2.exe /Shortcuts

Thanks ricktendo64!

I made this simple batch to automate the process as part of my pre sysprep cleanup script.

reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Setup\UserOptions" /v "DesktopShortcut" /t REG_SZ /d "no" /f
reg load HKU\ZZZ "c:\documents and settings\default user\NTUSER.DAT"
reg add "HKU\ZZZ\Software\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Setup\UserOptions" /v "DesktopShortcut" /t REG_SZ /d "no" /f
reg unload HKU\ZZZ
