I was reading this on the web:

  1. Press Windows Key + R, type "regedit" in the box, then press enter.
  2. Go to this path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces
  3. Repeat steps 4 and 5 for all folders under "Interfaces" (You can have from 1-100 folders, i had 14)
  4. Create two new registry keys called "TcpAckFrequency" and "TCPNoDelay" (Right click on an empty scace, go to "New" and select DWORD (32-bit) Value)

How do I create a batch script that goes through all the folders in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces and adds the two DWORD entries of "TcpAckFrequency" and "TCPNoDelay"?

I'm assuming the FOR command is used but I just don't know how to do it.

Edit: I'd also like to know the code needed to go through and delete all those keys from the folders.

Warning:

  • The instructions below contain steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly.

  • Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.

  • For more information see How to back up and restore the registry in Windows


Use the following batch file (test.cmd):

@echo off
setlocal
rem get the keys
for /f "usebackq" %%i in (`reg query HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces`) do (
  rem add the values
  reg add %%i /v "TcpAckFrequency" /d "1" /t REG_DWORD
  reg add %%i /v "TCPNoDelay" /d "1" /t REG_DWORD
  )
rem get the keys
for /f "usebackq" %%i in (`reg query HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces`) do (
  rem delete the values
  echo delete %%i /v "TcpAckFrequency" /f
  echo delete %%i /v "TCPNoDelay" /f
  )
endlocal

Note:

  • Replace the 1 in /d "1" with whatever value is appropriate for your use case.
