    Why am I having trouble importing this registry file I made?

    Hi fellow members, I find myself turning to you for an issue that baffles me. For some reason, I cannot import this registry script I made. Syntax seems to be correct. I'm thinking it's most likely an invalid key somewhere. Can someone take a look at the attachment and advise me as to what is causing this error: "The specified file is not a registry script." Thanks!

    Welcome to the forum.

    It appears that the file was opened in Wordpad (or similar program) and saved in rich text format. Opening the file in Wordpad and saving as plain text should fix it.
