Does the BigFix Agent require regedit.exe to operate properly on Windows?

Technote (troubleshooting)


Problem(Abstract)

The TEM Agent for Windows computers will generally operate properly without regedit.exe and will run, report status on Fixlets, Tasks, Baselines, Analyses, properties, etc.

Resolving the problem

The TEM Agent for Windows computers will generally operate properly without regedit.exe and will run, report status on Fixlets, Tasks, Baselines, Analyses, properties, etc.

However, there is an important exception that any Fixlet or Task that uses the "regset" or "regdelete" action commands will not work unless regedit.exe is installed in the Windows folder.

If regedit.exe is not on the computer and you run an action that uses regset or regdelete, then you will receive the error:
"Command failed(regedit process failed) "
