Can't find cscript error

    Question

  • Hi :

    I have same problem and I tried the reg script ( copied on a notepad and renamed the file with .reg extension)

    When I double clicked and pressed merge, I got message " The specified script is not a registry script. You can only import binary registry files from within registry editor"

    Please provide the steps, how you got this resolved.

    Thanks.

  • What do you mean double clicked and choose Merge. You either double click (in Explorer) or right click and choose Merge.
