Easiest way to add Multi_SZ reg key using reg file

This is going to be a shot one – just cut to the chase.

During regular Task Sequence OSD I had to import a Multi_SZ key to the registry. I didn’t work for me using regular methods (just running REG Import) and searching the web had practically no result.

The reason behind this is that you cannot just write down your key in a reg file for a Multi_SZ value. You have to use a hex code value.

For example, if you’re interested in something like this:

Reg_string_value

Reg_string_value

Your reg file will look like this:

Reg_hex_value

Reg_hex_value

So how do you get the hex value of your string?

What I did then is simply common sense. I’ve created the key manually on my test machine and exported the key to a reg file. Now you have the hex value of the key 🙂
