I have a piece of script to update windows registry. But it turned out that it works only for the users who ran the script. The script is shown as below. Can anyone tell me how to apply the changes to all users in a computer?

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT.sapssd] @="SapFront.App"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT.ssd] @="SapFront.App"

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT is a pseudo registry hive that contains both the keys found in the per-user settings under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes and the system-global settings under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes. Writes to the HKCR pseudo hive go to the per-user settings under HKCU. If you want to update the system-global settings you should write to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes instead.
